Fossicker's Shop

Our resident upcycling bandicoot Mr Fossicker is proud to welcome you to Fossicker's Shop. Located at the Hanrahan Road Waste Facility, Fossicker's is a great place to find preloved and vintage treasures at very affordable prices.

Fossicker's showcases recycled artworks and displays to inspire creative reuse and an endless source of items to upcycle into your newest masterpiece.

With stock changing daily visitors are sure to find something special, whether it’s a new piece of furniture, lovely homewares, garden and outdoor products, items for your latest DIY project, affordable electrical items or clothes for babies, kids and adults.

Fossicker's also provides a drop-off where you can donate your unwanted items and deposit excess recyclables. If you donate items you will receive a discount voucher to deposit rubbish at the landfill on the same day.

To reduce harmful items going to landfill, Fossicker's accepts the following household items for recycling or safe disposal:

  • Mobile phones & accessories
  • Household batteries
  • E-waste (computers, monitors, TVs, printers, cables)
  • Printer cartridges
  • Light globes & tubes
  • Gas bottles
  • Paint
  • Household chemicals
  • Cooking oil
  • Needles & syringes
  • Aerosol cans
  • General recycling for those times when your recycling bin is full

    Car batteries ($1 each), engine oil (25c/L) and separated scrap steel (free) can be taken to Hanrahan Road Waste Facility through the weighbridge.
