Waste & Recycling

Wangara Greens Recycling Facility

The Weekend Greens Recycling Facility in Wangara accepts clean green waste from the public and creates mulch for resale. 100% of the Green Waste is recovered, with no residual waste going to landfill.

Note - Commercial contractors and residents

Commercial organisations accessing the Wangara Greens Recycling Facility to dispose of green waste using residents tipping vouchers will no longer be accepted, unless:

They attend the site with a letter from the resident advising the staff at Wangara Greens Recycling Centre that they are disposing of the green waste on behalf of the resident. The letter must clearly detail:

  • The residents name and address 
  • It must have the residents Rates Assessment Number (this can be found on the rates notice) and 
  • It must be signed by the resident.

Unless the letter features all of the above, the Contractor will need to pay the relevant gate fee or be turned away.
