Carterton District Transfer Station

Last updated: 11 Oct, 2021 11:52am

The Dalefield Transfer Station will be open as usual to receive general waste, green waste and recycling.

However, due to a fire damaging part of the conveyor belt at the processing plant, we still have a reduced processing and storage capacity for non-glass recycling.

We will store as much recycling as possible on site until repairs are completed (which could take up to 8 weeks) but please hold on to any recycling if possible.

Please note. At COVID-19 alert level 2, payments must be cashless.
