Location

The Ranford Road Resource Recovery and Waste Transfer Station (Transfer Station) is located at 81 Ranford Rd, Canning Vale, however the regular access point from Ranford Road is currently closed to the public. This is due to the METRONET Ranford Road Station works happening nearby.

To enter the Transfer Station, you must travel from Wilfred Road and along Livingstone Drive. Keep travelling on Livingstone Drive until you see the entry sign. This detour takes about 5-10 minutes. Download the access map (JPG 70KB).

Access to Waste Transfer Station off Ranford Road will be closed for all general traffic. Please use Wilfred Road.

Remember to sort and save

Sorting your rubbish load saves you money and reduces the amount of waste landfilled.

A sorted load is one that has been separated into waste types. For example, it is important that green waste is separated from general rubbish going to landfill, as green waste can be mulched. Other items such as scrap metal, white goods, brick rubble and sand/soil can be recycled and need to be separated.

Loads containing recyclable items that have not been sorted will be charged at the more expensive mixed waste rate.

The public can drop off their unwanted household hazardous waste for free, even if they are not a resident.

Accepted household hazardous waste:

  • acids and alkalis
  • aerosols
  • batteries (household)
  • engine coolants and glycols
  • fire extinguishers; non-halon (red) only
  • flammables
  • flares
  • fluorescent lamps and tubes (CLFs)
  • gas cylinders (small household 9kg)
  • household chemicals (e.g. cleaners)
  • paint
  • pesticides/herbicides
  • poisons/toxics
  • pool chemicals
  • smoke detectors.

Unknown chemicals are accepted but must be in sealed chemical resistant containers.

We only accept household quantities of materials:

  • no larger than 20kg or 20L per material type, per vehicle per day
  • for paint, 100L per vehicle per day is accepted.

SodaStream-type cylinders are not accepted. To find out more about returning these items, visit the SodaStream website.

Download the State Government's Household Hazardous Waste Program brochure, which details other sites where you can drop off waste.

E-waste for Sam's Spares

Residents can donate e-waste to Sam’s Spares – a charity run by Sam, a 19-year-old Autistic man with Tourette Syndrome, who saves unwanted e-waste from landfill by repairing and rebuilding them. Note that a fee applies for non-residents.

To help Sam collect e-waste, we’ve added a new collection point at the Transfer Station. Sam accepts laptops, desktop computers, monitors, keyboards and mice, mobile phones, tablets, games systems and/or accessories, laptop power cables and computer parts.

Textiles for Upcycle4Better

Clothing, shoes, home textiles (such as towels and linens), soft toys, accessories (such as hats and belts) and underwear are accepted. Upcycle4Better will sort these items – some will get a second life, some will be repaired, some will be upcycled into new products, turned into new yarns, composite materials or into energy source. Nothing will be sent to landfill.

New LBin Tail Lift platforms have been installed at the Transfer Station. The platforms make it safer and easier when unloading trucks.

The platforms are only for trucks with a tail greater than 1.8m and a truck deck floor higher than 800mm.

If it is your first time, please chat to our staff on-site to learn how to use the platform safely. To learn more, please watch this video:
