Tip Shop truck with signage

Tip Shop truck

Check out our awesome Tip Shop truck and team - collecting recoverable stuff from the tipping point and delivering it to the Tip Shop.

It's also designed to increase visibility and engage people around reducing, reusing and waste minimisation. Feel free to have a chat with driver, who will be happy to talk about what they do and why.

There is no collection service.

Water tanks

200 litre water tanks are available* at the Tip Shop during usual opening hours - including weekends. They cost $105 - find out more information here about water supply and emergency management plans. 

*As the water tanks are in high demand, stocks often run out, so please call our Contact Centre on 499 4444 to make sure there are plenty available before you head up there.

Garden products

You can also buy the bagged Capital Compost garden products at the shop.
