Planing your visit
To make best use of the EcoDrops, its best to plan ahead,
helping you save time and money.
If we can accept it in the recycling centre then it will
be free! Please check our guide for what we accept.
It also houses the Hazardous Waste area where unwanted
household chemicals can be dropped off for free.
Once past the weighbridge, everything dropped off will be
charged by weight.
We have different rates for different materials so its
important to tell our kiosk staff what you are disposing.
After dropping off your waste into the right area,you
enter onto the exit weighbridge.
We weigh your vehicle and you are charged on the
difference between the inward and outward weight.
We accept cash, EFTPOS, Visa and Mastercard
Load your car, trailer, van, truck in the right order
The last items you put into your vehicle will be the first out
when getting to the EcoDrop. Therefore, its best to load in the
Refuse, greenwaste and hardfill
Once you go over the weighbridge everything is charged for so
best to get the free stuff out first!
Greens and hardfill are charged at lower rates than general
refuse. Using multiple weighs you can cross the weighbridge
several times, only being charged for the material just
disposed. For example, you may have some bricks, garden waste
and general refuse in your trailer so you can do the following.
- Cross the entry weighbridge and tell the kiosk operator you are
going to dispose the hardfill only
- Drive to the hardfill area, deposit the bricks and then drive
over the exit weighbridge. You will be charged for the
hardfill at the set price on our price list
- Drive over the entry weighbridge again and tell the kiosk
operator you are going to dispose of green waste only
- Drive to the green waste area and deposit the garden waste then
drive over the exit weighbridge. You will be charge the
current green waste fee as per our current price list.
- Drive over the entry weighbridge for the final time with only
the refuse on board.
- Deposit the refuse into the pit and then drive over the exit
weighbridge. You will then be charged the general refuse rate
as per our current price list.
Before doing a multi-weigh, speak with the kiosk operator and
they can tell you the best way to reduce your cost. In some
cases, you may only have enough weight to incur a minimum charge so
crossing the weighbridge multiple times may end up costing you more
in time and money.
Sorted Mixed Loads
If you are pressed for time and don't want to go through the
weighbridge multiple times, we have two options for sorted mixed
loads as follows
- Refuse and Green
- Hardfill and Green
These two options have a set flat rate per tonne so its best to
speak with the kiosk operator to make the best use of these
options. If you choose to use one of the Sorted Mixed Load
options, the materials must be dumped in the designated area.
As an example, if you have green waste and refuse, you must
ensure these are placed into the right area. Green waste must
be placed in the nominated greens area, refuse must be dumped into
If in doubt...
If you are not sure what the best option is, please ask the
kiosk operator and they will be happy to assist. You also
contact us and you can find our details here.
