What happens next

When using the waste service at an EcoDrop, we weigh your vehicle upon entering and exiting the facility. The difference in weight equates to the net load and used to calculate your fee for using the service.  There is a minimum fee option for small loads which can speed up your exit.

Our staff at the kiosk will identify the load and the relevant fee structure that applies. Below is our current fees and charges related to the use of our EcoDrop facilities.

Please note: prices include GST. Prices are subject to change without notice. EcoCentral is not able to absorb any increased costs associated with Government Levy's or Transwaste Canterbury Ltd Landfill charges. Any increases in these fees will be passed on to the customer.
