Cash will no longer be accepted at any transfer stations. Customer details will be recorded by attendants and accounts will be issued to users on a monthly basis. Existing account holders will operate as normal. Eftpos is not available at transfer stations.
Please avoid unnecessary visits to the transfer station, as these measures are vital to the continuation of this service. Visitors to the transfer stations must wear a mask.

Payment for animal registrations
Animal Registrations are still payable. Customers can pay over the phone or post a cheque. If a customer wishes to pay in person, they can do so once customer service centres re-open. Customers will not encounter any late fees until the offices have been open with suitable time for them to pay. It is not recommended that people come into the office to pay animal registrations as this is not considered essential.
