Get Ready for disaster season with FREE dumping for all sorted domestic waste at all Cook Shire Waste Transfer Stations from Tuesday 25 October until Monday 7 November 2022.

Cleaning up, clearing, and properly disposing of domestic waste from in and around your property, will help to prepare your home and your family for what might come.

All un-sorted waste will be charged according to the regular fees and charges.
