Transfer Station fees

Reduce your fees by separating your load - for example, keep hard waste separate from green waste and only pay for half a load of each. Garbage that is not separated will incur higher fees.

A car boot load of green waste is free for residents of Moonee Valley.

Please note: concrete, sand, soil and rubble are not accepted at the Transfer Station.

Free mulch and compost

Free mulch and compost is available for Moonee Valley residents, subject to availability.

The material generally comes from the shredded prunings off park and street trees from Moonee Valley. Because the material is untreated, it may contain contaminates, weed seed, allergens and other micro-organisms which may be unsafe and:

  • cause damage to plants, animals and property;
  • contribute to skin irritations and cause respiratory conditions in some users.

Council accepts no liability of any nature whatsoever in the use of the mulch and/or compost.

To find out more or to check availability, please call us on 9243 8888.
