Free Paper and Cardboard Recycling Drop off, Melbourne

Illegal dumping outside our gate or near our driveway will result in CCTV footage being provided to the police and council for immediate prosecution.

Australian Waste Management advocates for recycling! Please drop off any unwanted paper and cardboard for recycling.

Unfortunately due to major increases in costs including labour, fuel, mechanical repairs, registration, etc, and the massive decrease in the need for paper and cardboard for recycling and remanufacturing, we have had to introduce a minimal fee for paper and cardboard drop off. The fee is $25 per 660ltr bin full of paper and cardboard. Please call ahead with an estimate of the amount of paper and cardboard you would like to drop off, and one of our friendly customer care representatives will assist in taking your payment by credit card over the phone prior to you arriving at the yard. Once you arrive at the yard, one of our friendly yardsmen will assist you with identifying where to unload your paper and cardboard. The fee is $25 minimum, and if it is just slightly more than a 660ltr bin full, we won’t charge any extra, it’s only if it is a full second bin that we would consider an additional charge, so please try to estimate fairly accurately to avoid the extra work involved.

For comparison, if you were to take your paper and cardboard to landfill, not only will it be buried in the ground instead of being recycled, but they will charge you $220 per tonne minimum, which is extraordinarily more than our minimal charge. We are also much more handily located than any of the nearby tips, and you won’t risk flat tyres due to having to drive over garbage to tip the items. Help us save the environment and we will help you save your hard earned money.
