Skip bins are located at  transfer stations on Palana Road just north of the turn-off to the township of Killiecrankie, and on Lady Barron Road just outside the town boundary of Lady Barron. 

Council are actively trying to better the waste management arrangements for the Island and establish an efficient, effective waste transfer system that benefits the Island, its users and Council as the regulator and service provider.


Cash 4 Cans is a recycling initiative with Flinders District High School, Hydro Tasmania and Flinders Council.

Community members assist with sorting aluminium cans that are then baled and sent off-Island for recycling. All money is raised for the Flinders Island District High School.

The next sorting days: 

Saturday 25th November 2023
10:00am - 12:00pm Whitemark Tip

Wednesday 6th December 2023

We're excited to announce that our drumMUSTER program has returned to the Whitemark Waste Facility.

Drop off days will now be exclusively hosted on the first Wednesday of every month, the next event will be 6th December 2023. Please note the January 2024 event will not be be held, due to the Council Christmas closure.

Eligibility: Only Agricultural and Veterinary chemical drums displaying the drumMUSTER logo are accepted into this program.
Condition: Drums must be triple rinsed with no remaining chemicals.

Let's work together to make this initiative a success! ♻️
