Recyclable items

Members of the public can drop off, free of charge, a range of recyclable items as follows:
 
  • Cardboard - Please squash/flat pack your cardboard to avoid delays onsite.
  • Polystyrene
  • Glass bottles and jars
  • Aluminium cans
  • Metal items
  • Whitegoods
  • Electronic Waste (e-waste)

We are no longer able to accept household goods for free through our drop off area (for example: furniture, bric-a-brac, kitchenware, sporting goods, toys, etc). 

Household goods may go over the weighbridge for a fee.

If the items are in reasonable condition and you are unable to find a new home for them, rather than dispose of them, we suggest you hold on to them until such time as we are able to accept them again. Together we can still help keep items out of landfill!

 
We recommend you attempt to drop off as much recyclable material as possible through our free drop-off area, before proceeding over the weighbridge to dispose of in landfill. This ensures you pay the least amount in fees and helps conserve natural resources through material recovery and reuse.

To save yourself time, we suggest you sort your load before you leave home to match the order that you will drop off your items.
 
The collection areas for materials below are listed in order of the first you will encounter, to the last. Pack your items so that the easiest to reach items (the first you will unload) are from the top of this list:
 
  • Household Hazardous Waste
  • Containers – glass and aluminium
  • Metal and whitegoods (excluding fridges and air conditioners, see below)
  • White polystyrene
  • Cardboard - Please squash/flat pack your cardboard to avoid delays onsite.
  • Electronic Waste (e-waste)
  • Fridges and air conditioners
