Transfer stations

The Westport and Reefton Transfer Stations are operated by SmartEnvironmental.


What happens at the transfer stations?

The Westport and Reefton Transfer Stations are key facilities in the district where recycling from the district is checked, sorted, compacted and stored to be sent to processing plants. All recycling needs to be sent outside the district for reprocessing since the Buller District has no recycling process facilities.

Refuse from zone one is collected at the Westport and Reefton ransfer Stations to be transported to the Nelson landfill for final disposal.

If you want to see what happens once your recycling arrives at the Westport transfer station watch our video on YouTube.

How much does it cost?

Please see the price list for disposal costs.
