To date there has not been a cost to ACTION to dispose of retired buses. Buses suitable for sale to the public are sold un-registered ex-ACTION depot.
Buses not suitable for sale to the public are first stripped of parts of value to ACTION by ACTION staff, the buses are then transported to the SIMS Sydney recycling centre, the only facility close to Canberra capable of taking delivery of a vehicle this size. There is a transportation cost of $1,500 per bus, however after the value of the recyclable materials are taken into account, ACTION currently nets around $350 per bus.
A small number of buses not suitable for sale to the public have been donated to the Fire Brigade, Australian Federal Police and the Australian Defence Forces for specialist emergency training purposes. These entities either retrieve the vehicle at their expense, or if interstate and for local destinations, the entities utilise ACTION Towing Services, at the current commercial towing rate.
