The Tip Shop accepts donated items people no longer want that are still in usable condition, and you can now also find us on Trade Me by searching 'tipshop' in the member profile section. Please note, we reserve the right to put items on Trade Me. All profits go towards the running of your favourite Tip Shop.

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.
200 litre water tanks are available at the Tip Shop during usual opening hours - including weekends. They cost $110.
As the water tanks are in high demand, stocks often run out, so please call our Contact Centre to make sure there are plenty available before you head up there.
See water tanks and water containers.
You can also buy the bagged Capital Compost garden products at the shop.
