Village transfer stations are undergoing an upgrade to access systems and security to provide a more efficient and user-friendly service to the community. Transfer stations in the villages of Nangus, Tumblong, Coolac and Muttama now have infrastructure installed to allow users to gain entry to the sites via an electronic tag.
The electronic entry system, combined with the installation of CCTV, will assist Council to monitor the sites more effectively and reduce the occurrence of illegal dumping in these areas resulting in a better service provided to users.
Authorised key holders can present their transfer station key to Council’s office at 255 Sheridan Street, Gundagai to obtain their electronic tag. To enable continuation of service users will retain the existing key until the new entry system is activated on Friday, 22 April 2022. Once the electronic system is active users are requested to return the original key to Council.
Residents of villages who do not currently have access and wish to apply for a tag can do so by completing an Application for Access to Transfer Station, providing proof of residential address and paying a key bond which is currently $50.00. Key bonds are fully refundable when access is no longer required, and the key is returned to Council.
Please ensure applications are received by Council prior to the new electronic entry system activation date of Friday, 22 April 2022 to ensure there is no interruption to this service.
