Welcome to EcoCentral

Transfer stations around Christchurch accepting recycling and waste for both domestic and commercial customers

EcoShop is the retail outlet for the recycled goods rescued from our three EcoDrops.

Where the Yellow Bin recycling from Canterbury region is sorted, baled and sold as a reclaimed material.


At EcoCentral, we run the three EcoDrops and operate the Material Recovery Facility (EcoSort) on behalf of Christchurch City Council. The EcoShop is also part of our unique business.  We receive and process a high proportion of Canterbury recycling and waste, seeking to divert into usable resources, with a target of minimising the residual waste to landfill.
