Barretta Waste Management Facility

Council is holding two Free Green Waste Weekends at the Barretta Facility, which are open for residents according to their postcode. The split weekends are designed to make sure we are protecting our community and staff, as well as complying with distance requirements.

Green waste will be accepted from Kingborough residents at no cost between the hours of 9am and 4pm on the following weekends, which are open to residents of each postcode listed.

You will need to provide proof of address upon entry to the facility.

  • Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 June:
    • Kingston 7050
    • Bonnet Hill/Taroona 7053
  • Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 June:
    • Blackmans Bay 7052
    • Huntingfield 7055
    • Margate and all of the Channel

Green waste must be completely free of contaminants including general and hazardous waste, plastic and declared weeds.  Assistance on weed identification is available by contacting Council on (03) 6211 8200. Detection of contaminated green waste may result in disposal fees being applied.

A limit of 5 cubic metres per household applies. Private and commercial collection operators will be required to pay standard rates for green waste disposal.

Residents are requested to follow directions of staff as free disposal weekends are very busy.  Staff appreciate the patience of all visitors to the facility during this time. Enquiries relating to the program can be directed to Kingborough Waste Services on (03) 6267 2337.
