Cambridge transfer station reopening

Enviro Waste has confirmed its Cambridge transfer station will reopen to the public next week, following the completion of a safety upgrade on site. In response to local calls for accessible and easy to use recycling facilities, the transfer station is set to open with longer operating hours, new safety barriers, wood and e-waste recycling.

EnviroWaste’s Central Regional Manager Cathryn Taylor says: “We’re looking forward to welcoming back our Cambridge customers at the start of February. We’re in the final stages of installing new technology in the weighbridge that will provide a seamless process for users – and once that system is up and running we’ll be able to open our doors to the public.”

To give people more choice about when they time their visit, Enviro Waste is extending opening hours to 40 hours a week.

From February 2, the Cambridge transfer station on Matos Segedin Drive will be open 9am – 5pm, Thursday to Monday.

The Cambridge transfer station is set up to provide the community with waste minimisation and recycling solutions.  It is a handy drop off point for a range of recyclable materials – including e-waste and treated and untreated timber.

Says Taylor: “When it comes to your unwanted household electronics, we take anything with a plug and there is a separate bin on site for safe household battery disposal. We’re also now offering wood waste diversion, so you can bring in your separated timber and we’ll make sure it gets a second life.”

The user pays Cambridge transfer station accepts recycling and general waste, and from there materials go to a recycling facility or landfill for disposal.

Residents will be able to drop off the following recyclable materials:

  • Plastics numbered 1, 2 and 5
  • Steel and aluminium cans
  • Cardboard and paper
  • Scrap steel
  • E-waste
  • Wood waste.
