Most waste materials that do not fit or cannot be placed in your existing bin system can be taken to the Waste Management Centre.

All vehicles are weighed in and out of the Waste Management Centre and waste materials are charged on a weight per category basis. This makes it more cost effective for visitors. On arrival, weighbridge staff will direct you to the appropriate area for your materials.

TIP: Sort your load and save!

To ensure you are charged the cheapest rates, make sure you sort your items into waste, recyclable and FREE drop-off items. You may be required to go over the weighbridge twice to differentiate free, fixed price and fee-based materials.
