Accepted items

  • Tyres (small quantities)
  • Car bodies
  • Low level hazardous waste
  • Household chemicals – not in commercial quantities
  • Asbestos (only if packaged and wrapped to the prescribed standard).

Dispose of your recyclables for free

If your load only contains the following it will be free:

  • Whitegoods, eg fridges, freezers and washing machines
  • Scrap metal including small amounts of wire, rinsed steel and aluminium cans
  • Car batteries
  • Cardboard, packing boxes, magazines, newspapers (must be flattened and clean)
  • Glass bottles
  • Small household appliances (e.g. kettles, toasters, hairdryers, stereos).

Important notes

  • Loads that contain any other materials will be charged at the standard rate.
  • Residential loads only - commercial loads will not be accepted.
  • Special conditions apply to gas bottles and sealed drums - contact the City prior to delivering these items to landfill.
  • Green waste and brick rubble are not free items - if they are combined with a load containing the above listed items, the trailer load will incur standard fees.

Why are only some recyclables accepted for free?

The City can cover the cost of handling items such as steel and aluminium by reselling them. Items such as green waste and rubble are costly to process and have little or no resale value and therefore cannot be accepted for free.

Sort 'n' Save

A sorted load is one that has been separated into waste types. For example, it is important that green waste is separate from general rubbish that is going to landfill as it can be mulched. Other items such as scrap metal, whitegoods, brick rubble and sand/soil can be recycled and need to be separated.

Sorting rubbish at the landfill saves you money and prolongs the life of the landfill. 

Loads containing items that can be recycled but have not been sorted will be charged at the unsorted rate. 

How to sort a load

When preparing your load you must separate all your items of waste into the following categories:

  • Cardboard and paper
  • Glass bottles
  • Aluminium cans
  • Scrap metal
  • Plastics
  • Vehicle batteries
  • Green waste
  • Sawn timber
  • Logs
  • Clean sand, soil or clay
  • Brick rubble
  • Concrete
  • Reinforced concrete
  • Old furniture
  • Whitegoods
  • E-Waste.
