Visiting Transfer Stations during COVID-19:
With more people at home, there is a noticeable increase in traffic at the landfill, transfer stations and recycling depots.
If possible, limit the number of trips you take to these facilities so they do not become overwhelmed and create a situation of crowding. It is important when visiting these facilities to ensure you are practicing proper physical distancing from those around you.
Located along the Sugarloaf Mountain/Whiteman Creek Forest Service Road off Westside Road approximately 3.2 kms past Udell Road in Killiney Beach.
