Hi Cameron

Thank you for your recycling enquiry.

Sections of steel pipe are not recyclable in your home recycling bin. The kerbside recycling system is designed to handle your everyday packaging waste like food cans, so other metal household items are unable to be processed.

Our team has completed a quick check on your behalf and we have found that steel pipe and other scrap metal items are free to drop-off at Wollongong Waste and Resource Recovery park at Reddalls Rd, Kembla Grange.

There is a finite amount of metal in the earth so recycling scrap metals preserves natural resources and makes the best possible use of available resources. It requires less energy to recycle metal than manufacture new products using virgin raw materials and it can be recycled again and again.

Thank you for your recycling enquiry. Every question helps us build a stronger platform for providing better recycling solutions in Australia.

Please reach out to us again at Recycle Mate any time with your recycling questions.
