Kingborough Waste Services

Kingborough Waste Services (KWS) is a company established and wholly owned by the Kingborough Council to manage the waste recycling and recovery operations of the Barretta Waste Management Facility.

KWS is managed by an independent Board comprising four Directors, including two external Directors and an independent Chair.

We operate two waste management facilities – a waste transfer station at Barretta (previously a landfill site) and a waste transfer station at Main Road, North Bruny. See the Recreation & Facilities Map for exact locations.

The Barretta site is a state-of-the-art waste management facility that includes a Re-Use Shop, recycling and green waste areas and general refuse drop off points. 

KWS aims to deliver sustainable, value for money waste management services to the Kingborough community. We seek to ensure that the highest level of service is provided to the community at the lowest reasonable cost.
