The recycling drop-off area in the north-western corner of the centre will be closed for works from Monday 28 October until Friday 20 December 2019. The rest of the centre will not be affected by these works.
You can still drop off household waste, garden waste, scrap metal, large whitegoods and building rubble.
The centre's opening hours will remain the same: Monday to Friday 1pm-4pm and Saturday to Sunday 8am - 4pm.
We are carrying out works to extend the roof over the recycling drop-off area in order to comply with EPA regulations regarding the collection of e-waste.
We would like to thank Sustainability Victoria for making these works possible through the funding received from the E-Waste Infrastructure Grant.
