E-Waste and Other Waste
Computers, TVs and other electronic devices can be dropped off to our free TechCollect recycling program at Wylie Bay Waste Facility.
Construction and Demolition Waste (C&D)
The types of wastes generated from C&D include unsuitable materials from building sites prior to construction as well as waste from the construction phase or during the demolition of buildings. This includes bricks, pavers, roof tiles, rocks and rubble. Wylie Bay Waste Facility stockpile this stream of waste and periodically crush it into aggregate that can be reused as landfill cover, used to construct tracks or for road base. This process diverts the material from landfill and avoids wasting valuable void space.
When delivering this material it must be free from dirt, steel and hazardous materials such as asbestos.
A declaration form is required on delivery.
