Nimbin Transfer Station upgrade makes recycling easier

This was originally published on 29/4/16, so the finishing touches have probably all been completed by now.

News Release:

There may be a few finishing touches to go, but the bulk of the Nimbin Transfer Station upgrade is complete, with a new drop-off area for waste and recycling.

Where it was previously messy and difficult to lift items into the skips, locals can now drive onto an elevated platform to quickly and easily place items in the three skips provided.

Council’s Waste Operations Coordinator Kevin Trustum said the upgrade also includes new security fencing and a new gatehouse, improved roads and better amenities. He said this work is still underway and urged residents to follow traffic control when on-site.

“We ask people to please be aware that the way you enter and exit the facility has changed, so just be mindful of this when you next visit,” Kevin said.

“The Nimbin Transfer Station was looking very old and tired, and was not up to today’s safety standards. These simple but essential works have made the facility a much more convenient and pleasant place for locals to visit.”

The Nimbin Transfer Station is open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9am to 3pm.
