DO NOT DUMP ITEMS AND DO NOT SEND UNSOLICITED PARCELS
We have had a number of cases where items for recycling are sent without contact information, dumped at our premises, or left in the letterbox.
PLEASE CONTACT US BEFORE SENDING OR LEAVING ANY ITEMS WITH US.
There is usually a $5 handling fee. Many items have low scrap value and also require processing for achieving a good environmental outcome.
We now accept welding and plasma cutting equipment for repair. We have two technicians who are experienced with repairing welding and related equipment.
Price drop for CRT monitor recycling
We have dropped the price of CRT monitor recycling from $30 to $10 to reflect the lower costs for their recycling.
Our online shop is now operating. It is still under development so please let us know if you experience any problems.
