Storing and transporting your wastes

Please handle and transport your materials carefully and safely. Protect your vehicle by placing items on a protective sheet or tray in the boot to capture any leakages or breakages.

The Community Recycling Centre facilitates the reprocessing and reuse of these materials and prevents them from entering landfill. By sorting your waste and taking it to your local Recycling Centre, you will:

  • Help improve recycling rates
  • Save water, energy and other valuable natural resources.
