New rules for attending Transfer Stations

Horsham Rural City Council (HRCC) has made some changes to how Transfer Stations operate during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Horsham’s Kenny Road Transfer Station and all rural facilities remain open for essential visits from HRCC residents and businesses only.

However the following restrictions apply:

  • The Tip Shop is closed
  • Please stay in car wherever possible
  • Essential waste drop-off only
  • Contactless card payments only at Kenny Road Transfer Station

Infrastructure Services Director John Martin said in line with the current COVID-19 restrictions, people should only be attending transfer stations if their visit was essential.

“Local businesses who use our sites and those residents without a kerbside collection service are examples of essential visits,” Mr Martin said.

“Over the last week, we’ve noticed that the number of customers to our sites has increased.

“Where it is necessary that children attend, they must remain inside their vehicles and anyone who fails to follow physical distancing rules will be asked to leave.

“The Tip Shop is not essential at this time and is closed,” he said.
