Recycle markets are large second hand shops located Resource Recovery Centres. They are clean and tidy and the prices are low. The markets are operated by local not-for-profit organisations with proceeds from sales going back into local communities.

The recycle markets are open to everyone, and are perfect for:

  • renters looking for furniture and home-wares at bargain prices
  • parents setting up a nursery and looking for reusable cots and highchairs
  • anyone thinking of trying a new sport (you will find a range of equipment from sets of golf clubs to cricket pads, fishing rods, surfboards etc.)
  • renovators looking for cheap building materials.

Many items are new or hardly used. Some have been restored or repaired in the market workshop and all items given a quick clean before being sold.

Top tips

  • All items must be picked up on the day, so it is worth taking a trailer, roof racks and tie-downs or clearing some boot space just in case.
  • Take a friend to help load bulky items like furniture. If you see something you like, one person can stay with the item while you find a sales person to help you.
  • To meet workplace health and safety requirements, visitors must wear closed in footwear at all waste and recycling facilities. People wearing sandals or thongs will be refused entry.
