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

With new stock arriving daily visitors are sure to find something special, whether it’s a new piece of furniture, handy 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 drop off 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*:
