Are tip passes available for residents?

The City does not offer or issue tip passes. For alternative waste disposal sites click here or visit recycling near you. Users of facilities on these sites pay for disposal costs.

What happens to my green waste?

On average 5,000 tonnes of green waste is taken to a processing facility where it is turned into important resources, such as soil conditioner and horticultural products.

These are used in preventing soil erosion and increasing water retention in parks, gardens and landscaped areas.

For this reason, the processing facility will not accept any contaminated green waste.
