Committed to Recycling

WM Waste Management Services takes the collected items to Knox Transfer Station which has a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) specially designed to recycle hard waste.

Mattresses are shredded and the metal extracted by magnets. Metal (ferrous and non-ferrous), clean timber, e-waste and cardboard is removed from the hard waste for recycling. Refrigerators are degassed prior to recycling. From some collections we are able to salvage reusable goods which we sell at the Knox Transfer Station Reuse Shop.

Bundled green waste is taken to organics recycling facilities such as Enviromix or Coldstream Recycling & Waste Transfer Station.
