NOTE ** Temporary Closure of Bora Ridge Transfer Station **
In the coming weeks Council will start capping Bora Ridge Landfill in accordance with approvals issued by the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA). The capping involves covering the landfill in a water-tight layer which will seal the old landfill to prevent the infiltration of stormwater. As the current Waste Transfer Station (WTS) is located within part of the area to be capped, Council will not be operating a WTS at the site for the duration of the capping works. The works are expected to last approximately 12 to 16 weeks dependent on weather.
At this stage a starting date for the works has not been confirmed and the WTS will continue to operate. Once a starting date is confirmed Council will advertise the date that the WTS will temporarily close. During the temporary closure the Evans Head WTS and the Nammoona Waste & Resource Recovery Facility will continue to operate as normal.
Rappville Transfer Station, Carwong Road Rappville: Sunday ONLY: 9.30am – 12.30pm

Check out Richmond Valley Council’s two tip shops next time you want to pick up a “dirt” cheap bargain.
The Casino (Nammoona) Tip Shop and Evans Head Tip Shop are a fantastic place to shop, while supporting the recycling of second hand and used goods which still have life left in them.
Nammoona Tip Shop is growing and there are some wonderful treasures to be found every day from vintage items, books, furniture and more.
We are committed to resource recovery, reuse and diverting as much as possible from landfill.
The tip shops offer a huge range of useful items including tools, kitchenware, furniture, gardening implements – including wheel barrows, lawnmowers, and bins – to books and pictures, homewares, toys, bikes and plenty of other recycled items simply too numerous to list.
Some come in today and grab a bargain from the Namoona Tip Shop, or the Evans Head Tip Shop.
