Most of the ‘waste’ that we produce contains valuable resources that can be recycled. All of Shoalhaven City Council’s ten (10) recycling and waste depots (rubbish tips) provide recycling services for a wide range of items that don’t go into your kerbside bins. Many of these services are free!
Household recyclables that can go into the yellow-lid bin are also accepted for free at our recycling and waste depots.
Please note that cash payments are not accepted at our depots.
Complaints about recycling and waste depot operations can be reported by contacting council.
