All of Shoalhaven City Council’s 10 Recycling and Waste Depots (Tips) provide recycling services for a wide range of items that don’t go into your kerbside bins. Many of these services are free! Most of the ‘waste’ that we produce contains valuable resources that can be recycled.
Household recyclables that can go into the yellow-lid bin are also accepted for free at our Recycling and Waste Depots.
Recycling reduces pressure on our natural resources and helps protect our diverse and beautiful environment by reducing the amount of waste going into landfill.
Please note that cash payments are not accepted at our Depots.
Complaints about Recycling and Waste Depot operations can be reported by contacting Council.
