Recycling Facilities

Recycling skip bins and trailers are a free, user friendly and convenient way to dispose of your recyclables such as paper and cardboard, plastic containers, aluminium and tin cans and glass containers at any time.

Recycling facilities are available at:

Racecourse Road (intersection of Charlotte Street), Cooktown
3 May Street (PCYC Cooktown Events Centre), Cooktown
Hope Street (intersection of Walker Street), Cooktown
Foyster Drive (near public telephone booth), Lakeland
Rossville / Bloomfield Road (Hatfield Marketplace), Rossville
West Street, Ayton

All plastic containers, tins and other recyclables should be clean before depositing at recycling stations. Please also remove all bottle caps and place them into recycling bins and trailers separately. It is illegal to dump rubbish in Cook Shire and while the recycling bins and trailers are emptied regularly, if you do find them full, please don't leave your recyclables on the ground. Recyclables are also free to dump at all Cook Shire waste transfer stations and landfills during regular opening hours.
