A wide range of problem-waste materials are collected at this centre including paint, oil, batteries, cardboard, polystyrene and x-ray films. To encourage the better management of food waste and diversion of food waste from landfill, Council also provides eligible residents interested in trying out composting and worm-farming a $50 rebate.
