The City of Canning Waste Transfer Station allows for quick and easy disposal of material from cars or trailers on a user pays basis, with residents receiving discounted fees.

What Waste is Accepted

The Waste Transfer Station can take waste from both residents and the commercial sector. Inert material taken through the transfer station is separated into metal material, plus building construction material such as rubble, bricks, concrete and sand and other material. Metal and building construction material is recycled, reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.

It is also a one-stop facility for disposal of Household Hazardous Waste (including batteries, aerosols, paint and chemicals) free of charge up to 20L/20kg per person. Residents have access to limited disposal of asbestos, which attracts a fee.

From Saturday 6 February 2021, access to our Waste Transfer Station has changed.

This is to allow for work on the new Ranford Road train station, part of METRONET’s Thornlie Cockburn Link project.
Access off Ranford Road will be closed to the public until late 2021. The new entrance point will be from Wilfred Road and along Livingston Drive. 
We will remain open throughout the work period. Our opening hours are from 8am to 4.30pm, seven days a week (excluding Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and Good Friday). See the map below for the detour route. 

Celebrate National Recycling Week with Free Mattress Recycling at the City of Canning Waste Transfer Station!
 
Mattresses are one of the most common items sent to landfill where they can take over a century to breakdown. They also create problems because they are difficult to compact, clog machinery and create large soft spaces that can turn into sinkholes after filling.
 
On Saturday and Sunday the 13/14th of November 2021, residents can drop off their unwanted mattress at the Waste Transfer Station for FREE*. 
 
 
 *Conditions:
 

  • Offer limited to a maximum of 4 mattresses or bases per vehicle per visit.
  • Mattresses and Bed Bases are counted as separate items.
  • Resident must be able to handle unloading at the Transfer Station. We suggest at least two people are available.
  • Offer applies to City of Canning residents only. Proof of address is required.
  • Not available to commercial ratepayers. 
  • Normal fees apply outside of this promotional weekend. See our Fees and Charges for details.
  • Only available during normal open hours.

 
Please note mattresses in good condition can also be cleaned and donated to charities to help them provide low-cost bedding.
