Tambo Waste is serious about recycling and protecting our environment. We operate a dedicated recovery and recycling centre in Bairnsdale. Comingled waste is collected from a variety of sources, principally residential recycling bins and commercial paper/carboard bins, and then transported to our recycling centre.

Waste products are sorted into plastics, glass and paper/cardboard then compressed into bales for transportation to Melbourne. Other waste lines are sorted and packed for shipping.

Our recycling centre also accepts recycling waste on a drop off basis.    Both consumers and trade customers can bring their recycling waste to our recycling depot and dispose of waste into the designated recycling bins.

On site we accept …

  • paper and cardboard
  • plastics
  • glass 
  • aluminium containers
  • steel
  • Scrap Metal
  • E-Waste – TV’S and Computers (Anything that plugs into a computer such as printers, fax machines and game consoles)

The Tambo Waste Recycling Centre is located at 66 McMillan Street, Lucknow. It is open from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm Monday to Friday.

Recycling material can also be deposited at the East Gippsland Shire Council landfill and transfer stations. More information is available here…
