Much more than a tip, our Waste Recovery Centre is a place to bring your unwanted items for reuse, recycling or disposal.

Your load should be clean, sorted into groups, and ready to go.

Understand what you can drop off, what we won’t accept, and the restrictions on the size of your load.

Opening hours

Closed to the general public during Stage 4 restrictions introduced by the Victorian Government. 

Only open Monday to Friday, 7:30am to 3:30pm for Commercial Waste Collection Contractors. Closed weekends. Closed public holidays.
