Melbourne Bayside

The CopperRock Tip Shop

In addition to the waste & recycling section of our centre, we also have a tip shop where we stock a range of recycled goods sourced from the waste that comes in to CopperRock. We only select items that are in usable condition, upcycling them to be ready for sale at an affordable price. Some of the items you might find in our tip shop at any given time include furniture, homewares, filing cabinets, paintings and vintage knick knacks.

Our tip shop is open from 8am-4pm Monday-Saturday. We recommend bringing a ute or large car- our customers often depart with more items than they thought! If you have any further questions about our tip shop, please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly team on (03) 9585 4285.

The Benefits of Upcycling

At CopperRock, one of our core business values is doing as much as we can to conserve the environment. The tip shop is our contribution towards trying to upcycle someone else’s waste that isn’t ready to go into landfill.

Upcycling is an amazing alternative because it reduces the amount of waste that goes into landfill, which is always the goal of waste removal. The more waste that goes into landfill, the greater impact to our environment. In addition, upcycling reduces the demand for production, especially in relation to wood furniture which is costly to produce.

Finally, upcycling is fun and encourages creativity and innovation! At the CopperRock tip shop, our customers often find hidden gems that they can reinvent to suit the style of their home. Overall, upcycling is good for the environment, the economy and your creativity.

How it Works

Visiting our tip shop is a stress free and fun experience, located away from the waste & recycling centre for your convenience. When you arrive, simply park, walk into the tip shop and start exploring! We recommend bringing a large bag, box and a friend or family member in case you come across any heavy items.

When you’ve gathered your treasures, visit one of our staff who will check out the items for you and provide final pricing. Of course, our friendly team will always be there to help you. It’s important to note that our products are determined by the waste delivered to the centre each day; therefore, the stock will be ever changing. While we can’t guarantee exactly what will be in stock, we can guarantee is that there will always be high quality items looking for a new home.
