What we do with inorganic items we collect

​Items and materials recovered through our inorganic collection service are provided to local community recycling centres, as well as charities who've registered to receive items.

Collecting items from on-property will also ensure materials are intact and reusable.

Find your nearest community recycling centre here or visit them on Facebook below.

If you’re a community recycler, an op shop, a demolition yard or someone who uses reusable materials in your activities, you can to sign up to receive collected items.

For details see, Zero Waste Network.

If you’re not usually involved in resource recovery but you’ve got a one-off project that could do with some free reusable materials, such as:

  • school building project
  • community gardening project
  • fundraising jumble sale

It is worth getting in touch.
