Douglas Shire Council will give residents the opportunity to drop off their green waste for FREE at Council’s Transfer Stations from Saturday 21 November to Sunday 29 November 2020.

Killaloe Transfer Station is open Monday to Saturday from 8.00am to 5.30pm, and on Sunday from 9.00am to 5.30pm.

Newell Transfer Station is open on Saturdays from 8.00am to 11.45am, and on Wednesday afternoons from 1.00pm to 4.45pm.


  • Free green waste disposal is only available at Killaloe and Newell Transfer Stations
  • Domestic customers only – utes and/or trailers and light trucks (vehicle weight to GVM 4.5 tonnes maximum)
  • If residents require assistance from a garden maintenance contractor to deliver green waste to the Transfer Station on their behalf they must make a request and provide information (date, time of delivery) for approval. This can be done by emailing or calling Council on 4099 9444 and requesting to speak with Resource Management.
  • NOTE: Normal charges apply for disposal of any other waste. For enquiries regarding electric or crazy ant quarantine details please contact Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) on 13 25 23. Remember illegal dumping can incur a fine; it affects the environment and the safety of individuals. Please report any illegal dumping to 07 4099 9444.
