Strathbogie Shire Council is looking forward to installing additional bin bays at the Nagambie and Avenel Transfer Stations.
Council received $290,000 from the Victorian Government’s Transfer Station Upgrade Fund, Round 2, for the bays.
Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor Cr Laura Binks said the funding would ensure the transfer stations are equipped to deal with increased growth in the townships and surrounding areas.
“We have seen huge development taking place in both Nagambie and Avenel and it is important that services, such as our Transfer Stations, can support the population growth,” Cr Binks said.
Cr Binks said all of Council’s Transfer Stations were currently accepting flood waste free-of-charge following the recent flood event.
“The state government has extended the flood waste fee waiver to transfer stations until the end of this year,” she said.
Council’s Transfer Stations accept a maximum of 4m3 per household/vehicle per day.
“If you need to dispose of a larger quantity of materials, please contact Council to discuss disposal options,” Cr Binks said.
“Please remember Council does not accept bricks, concrete, clean fill or tiles at any of Transfer Station sites.
