Transfer Station Vouchers

Hindmarsh Shire Transfer Stations’ voucher system is continuing this financial year, so keep collecting your receipts!

Once you have collected 4 receipts, present these receipts to any Customer Service Centre to receive a voucher! (All receipts must be addressed to the same person)

The value of your voucher will equate to the average amount of the four receipts. Add all your vouchers together and divide by 4 to know what your voucher is worth. 

For example: 4 X $5 vouchers = $20

$20 divided by 4 = $5.  So, you will receive a $5 voucher!

Vouchers are not transferrable or refundable, and they are single use only.

Vouchers are only for private and individual claims, and businesses/organisations are not eligible to participate in this system.
