Cowes Recycle Bank To Open Another Day

The Cowes Recycle Bank will open on Tuesdays as of the new financial year, allowing the community to dispose of household waste and recycling five days per week at the site.

The new financial year will also see mattresses accepted at the site for a fee, in line with what is charged at all Council facilities.

The extension of opening hours was approved by Council at tonight’s meeting as part of the 2015/16 Budget.

As of 7 July, the Recycle Bank will be open from 10.30am until 3.30pm from Fridays through to Tuesdays.

Community members are also reminded that due to increases in EPA levies and the additional costs of landfilling, transfer station fees will also be increasing as of 1 July 2015.

For more information on transfer station and landfill open times and prices, please visit or call 1300 BCOAST (226 278) or (03) 5671 2211.
