Pick Ups

Items in Scrap Shack are currently free. All items are taken in ‘as is’ condition

Welcome to Scrap Shack!

Scrap Shack was officially opened on 9 June 2016.  Council undertook a ‘Name our Recycle Shop’ competition, which was won by local resident Brydie Maro with her suggestion ‘Scrap Shack’. Contractor, Don Groves then did a sensational job making the Scrap Shack sign from items recovered from the Transfer Station.

Whilst all items are currently free, it is intended that Scrap Shack will eventually be procured out to a third-party organisation.  The operator will be required to price items to ensure the operation is financially sustainable, but also record items and volumes so Council can track landfill diversion rates.

What you need to know:

Items for Scrap Shack must be in good condition.

Items dropped off will be assessed by Transfer Station staff and customers will be charged for items that are not accepted.

Drop offs can be accepted at any time during Killaloe Transfer Station’s opening hours.

Pick ups are only available during Scrap Shack opening hours.

All items are taken in ‘as is’ condition.  Electrical items have not been tested and cannot be tested by customers before leaving the site.

Important Notice:

For safety reasons Scrap Shack will be operating intermittently across the next five months due to construction at the transfer station.  Scrap Shack may be closed at short notice due to heavy machinery operating in the area.  Drop off will continue as normal as long as sufficient space is available.  Council apologises for any inconveniences caused.
