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.

Items you can bring to Waste Recovery Centre

At the moment restrictions are in place and you can only dispose of organic waste or garden waste if you live within 25km of the Waste Recovery Centre.
