Normal charges for refuse disposal will apply –

$3.00 for a standard black bag

Our preference is for payment by Eftpos to minimise COVID19 transmission risks.

The only materials accepted as recyclables will be plastics type 1 (clear drink bottles), type 2 (milk and janitorial bottles), type 5 (food storage), tin cans, aluminium cans, glass and cardboard.
PLEASE thoroughly rinse all your recyclables - the safety of our staff is vital.
