Building and construction waste

Council cannot dispose of building and construction waste.

Reducing the amount of waste produced should always be the first option. Visit YourHome for further information.

Secondly, a lot of building materials can be re-used. Discuss with your builder to determine your best options. If it's a DIY job, search online for endless inspirations.

Alternatively, you may be able to sell your quality materials for free via websites such as Buildbits or to a nearby salvage yard. Visit The Junk Map for details on salvage yards nearest to you. Be sure to contact the yard directly to confirm if they are interested in your materials prior to delivery.

There are commercial skip bin businesses that offer recycling services. We recommend you speak with your builder or conduct your own research for more information on these businesses.

As a last resort, you may dispose of un-salvageable building materials at the waste transfer stations listed below (fees will apply).
