The Rural Waste Guide is your guide to City of Albany waste services for rural households. All rural ratepayers were sent a hardcopy with their 2023/24 waste passes.

Rural Waste Guide

Rural Resident Waste Passes

The City of Albany provides complimentary waste passes to households outside of the kerbside bin collection area. Residents in these areas can use these passes to dispose of their household waste at the City's Rural Waste Transfer Stations or Waste Facilities.

Each financial year, rural ratepayers receive:

  • 40 tokens - for disposal of a 140L bin (or equivalent) of general waste per token, and
  • 1 ute/trailer pass - for disposal of larger items, up to 300kg.

Please note: it is a condition of using your Rural Resident Waste Pass that waste is separated correctly, including removing recyclables and hazardous waste items from general waste. Please refer to the Rural Waste Guide for more information. 

Additional passes can be purchased from the City of Albany Administration Office on North Road. Information on fees for additional passes is available here:

Transfer Station Information

Rural Waste Transfer Stations provide a domestic waste service for rural ratepayers within the City of Albany. 

Using Transfer Stations:

  • Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to closing to allow time for unloading.
  • Present pass on arrival to Transfer Station attendant who will record your address and vehicle registration. One token will be redeemed for the equivalent of a 140L bin of general waste. If you have the equivalent of two bins worth, two tokens will be redeemed, and so on.
  • Items that would not fit in a general waste bin can be delivered in exchange for your ute/trailer pass (exclusions apply). 
  • Deposit your household recycling in the recycling bins provided.
  • Move your vehicle to the general waste unloading ramp to deposit your waste into the large skip bin.
  • Some items cannot be accepted at transfer stations. This includes hazardous waste and items that have a fee attached at waste facilities, such as mattresses, asbestos, fridges/freezers, batteries and tyres.

Safety notes:

  • Vehicle ignition must be switched off while unloading waste.
  • Please ensure you are able to safely unload your own waste and bring someone to assist if needed. The facilities are not designed for tipping wheelie bins into the skip bins. It may be easier to have your general waste contained in bags.
  • Children and pets should remain in vehicles at all times.
  • Be aware of other vehicles moving around the site.
  • Wear enclosed footwear.
