Waste & Recycling

The Rediscovery Centre

The Redis­cov­ery Cen­tre is a retail recy­cling cen­tre and sal­vage yard where you can buy, drop-off and redis­cov­er sec­ond-hand, re-used, pre-loved goods.

The Redis­cov­ery Cen­tre is locat­ed on Com­mon­age Road and is open week­days from 8:00am‑4:00pm and week­ends 9:30am‑2:30pm (Closed Good Fri­day, Christ­mas Day and New Years Day).

What can you drop off or rediscover?

Books, bicy­cles, build­ing mate­r­i­al, tim­ber, house­hold items, tools, toys, fur­ni­ture and oth­er unwant­ed goods in work­ing order — so they can be redis­cov­ered by some­one else.

The Cen­tre also sells the mulch and crushed glass that is pro­duced on-site.

Is it FREE to drop-off items?

Yes, there is no charge to drop-off the above items at The Redis­cov­ery Cen­tre. Please note that The Redis­cov­ery Cen­tre reserves the right to reject unac­cept­able items based on type of item or its condition.

Mulch & Crushed Glass

The Redis­cov­ery Cen­tre also sells the mulch and crushed glass that is pro­duced on-site. All fees and charges can be found here..

Mulch

Green­waste dis­posed of by res­i­dents at the trans­fer sta­tion is recy­cled into mulch which can be pur­chased at The Redis­cov­ery Centre.

Crushed Glass

All non-10c refund­able glass except sheet or film-cov­ered glass, dis­posed of at the Trans­fer Sta­tion is crushed in region­al Aus­tralia largest glass crush­er. The prod­uct is then used across town in con­crete mix and pavers, among oth­er things.

Please note: To ensure the mulch and crushed glass prod­ucts pro­duced are qual­i­ty prod­ucts we ask that cus­tomers ensure their green waste and glass is free of con­t­a­m­i­na­tion such as liq­uids, paper, soil and oth­er lit­ter. Staff and CCTV cam­eras are mon­i­tor­ing the Trans­fer Sta­tion and where con­t­a­m­i­na­tion is iden­ti­fied, the cus­tomer will be charged the rel­e­vant gen­er­al waste fees and charges.
