The final stages of upgrade works at the Bellingen Transfer Station are now complete and the site is re-open to the public.

Work on the transfer station commenced in February and included concreting, asphalting, line marking and the installation of new compactor bins.  These works have decreased windblown litter and also improved efficiencies transporting waste to Coffs Harbour.  The expansion of the awning also allows more space for residents to unload their rubbish and recycling and provides better protection from the weather.

“The new layout has made the site more effective and allows staff to spend more time with residents helping them to increase their recycling”, said Mayor Dominic King, “Construction of the awning marks the completion of the refurbishment and I congratulate Council’s waste employees for delivering a project that achieves best practice waste management solutions for our Shire”.

This project was jointly funded by NSW EPA, through the Better Waste and Recycling fund, Bellingen Shire Council and Handybin through Coffs Coast Waste Services.
