Waste Recovery Centre

The Waste Recovery Centre will continue to operate while Stage 3 "Stay at Home" restrictions are in place, though avoid visiting unless necessary as delays and wait times can be expected. 

From Monday 13 July 2020 the Waste Recovery Centre will not accept tyres until further notice.

 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

Open from 7:30am to 3:30pm Monday to Friday.

Open from 7:30am to 12pm Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.

Delays and wait times can be expected as social distancing practices reduce the number of vehicles that can tip waste at any one time. Children under 12 years of age and pets must remain in vehicles at all times.

Daily quantity limits apply and are strictly enforced, including:

  • sump oil (maximum 20L container volume)
  • paint cans (100L container volume)
  • cardboard (maximum car boot load)

Card, EFTPOS and weighbridge account payments only, no cash transactions.
