The Resource Recovery Centre entry fees change annually and we have new fees coming into effective from 1 July 2024. 

There will be a significant increase in the fees for certain loads taken to the Resource Recovery Centre this financial year. This is due to an increase in the State Landfill Levy and the resulting cost impact on landfill load.  The increase will be approximately 40 – 50%, dependent on the load size.  

To ensure this impact is minimised, a tiered fee structure has been introduced on a ‘user pays’ basis. In this way, the cost increase can be reduced by sorting your load to ensure the amount going to landfill is minimised. 

 For example, below are the new fees:

Sedan, hatch or station wagon (seats up)

  • Full recovery load (recycle/reuse) $16   
  • Partial landfill load $20   
  • Full landfill load $25 (previously $15.00)

Van, ute or single axle trailer

  • Full recovery load (recycle/reuse) $23   
  • Partial landfill load $30   
  • Full landfill load $38 (previously $22)   

Tandem axle trailer 

  • Full recovery load (recycle/reuse) $32   
  • Partial landfill load $51   
  • Full landfill load $71 (previously $29)
