BURRAGAN RECYCLE SHOP 

Sort the treasure from the trash! Complementing the Community Recycle Centre operations, and stepping up the commitment to reducing waste and increasing recycling, the Burragan Recycling Shop at Singleton Waste Management Facility opened for business 5 November 2016.

HOW IT WORKS
Facility staff divert items destined for landfill to the recycling shop, including building items from renovations such as doors, flooring and pavers, nuts, bolts, nails and household items such as furniture, knick knacks and bicycles.

Funds raised through the recycling shop operations assist with Councils disposal of expensive recyclables and problem wastes such as chemicals and e-waste.  These services are currently offered free of charge to the community.

This Singleton Council project was supported by the NSW Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
