Bulk household recycling

Drop these items off for recycling, opposite Trash Palace, on your way to the landfill. If you drop them off on your way in they will not be counted in your fees calculation.

  • Glass bottles and jars 
  • All plastics except polystyrene and glad wrap
  • Cans
  • Paper and cardboard

Garden waste

Big weekend in the garden? Separate out your garden or green waste. The charge for this is less than the charge for general waste as long as you have only green waste in your load.

Green waste is turned into packaged and bulk premium quality composts, mulches and mixes, and sold back to the public and businesses.

Green waste includes lawn clippings, weeds, tree pruning and logs up to 400mm in diameter.
