Drop off Facilities

Introduction

Recycle Central operates two conveniently located facilities. The main resource recovery facility at Kurri Kurri and our Lake Macquarie reception facility are both open to the public from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. Our helpful weighbridge attendants and ground staff are there to help, so please feel free to ask them any questions you may have.

Drop off process

No bookings are needed. To dispose of waste at one of our facilities, simply bring the waste in your vehicle and follow instructions from our staff when you arrive at the weighbridge. 

You will be charged according to the weight you dispose of, just as you would at a council landfill. Please ensure that you are dressed appropriately and wear closed-in shoes.

Safety is of the utmost importance, and you must follow the following rules when at our facilities:

  • No asbestos or any material with any risk of containing asbestos is to be brought to our facilities.
  • Only move your vehicle or trailer when and to where our staff directs you.  
  • When you arrive at the unloading point indicated by our staff, please remain within your vehicle while your load is checked.
  • When our staff have checked your load, follow their instructions to unload your material.
  • After you have unloaded your material, please proceed back to the weighbridge when directed to do so.
  • Smoking is prohibited within our facilities due to the fire risk.
  • A speed limit of 10km per hour is to be strictly observed within our facilities.

When your unloaded vehicle is weighed on the weighbridge, you will be charged by card or cash.

Waste Types

For our environmental compliance and the safety of our staff and your fellow customers, you must adhere to our list of accepted waste types. The lists of accepted and prohibited items ensure that we only receive waste we are licensed to receive and that unsafe materials are not put through our processing plant. 

We sincerely appreciate the assistance of all of our visitors in helping ensure that only appropriate waste types are dropped off at any of our facilities. As a matter of compliance, all loads are carefully inspected by our trained staff, and any non-compliant loads must be rejected.
