Much more than a tip, the WRC 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.

Access

Please ensure that your waste is sorted before arrival to help reduce customer wait time. If your waste products are not separated, you may be asked to leave and come back once your load is sorted.

Be aware that cardboard and e-waste disposal services are in high demand and may exceed capacity. You may need to return at a later time.

There have been changes to the layout to the WRC during closure. Our team members will let you know what has changed when you arrive.

Residents in Banyule requiring waste disposal can book a hard waste collection (subject to availability).
