Waste & Recycling Centre

Our Waste and Recycling Centre is the perfect waste transfer solution for Bayside Melbourne residents.

Whether you’re getting rid of garden waste, general waste, renovation / building waste, glass bottles, paper & cardboard (flattened boxes), TV’s or mattresses; our team will take care of your waste sustainable in accordance with standards. Our Waste and Recycling centre is located in Cheltenham; however, we welcome residents outside of the Bayside suburbs to visit our facility.

Our team is made up of waste removal experts with over 15 years of industry experience, so you know you can trust the team at CopperRock to provide a quick, easy and reliable service. In everything that we do, we are focused on sustainability and the environment. Specifically, trying to reduce the waste that goes into landfill and recycling as much as possible. To do this, we have a team that are thorough in their approach to checking each and every customer’s waste load to ensure no non-recyclables slip through the cracks. Afterwards, we pass your recyclables onto our trusted recycling partners who turn your waste into useful materials.

You do not have to book to visit our recycling centre; however, if you have any questions that haven’t been addressed in our FAQs, be sure to contact our friendly team on (03) 9585 4385.
