Geelong Resource Recovery Centre and Transfer Station

The Geelong Resource Recovery Centre provides recycling and waste resource recovery services where customers can recycle or dispose of their waste and facilitate the reduction of the volume of local waste going into landfill.

Paint collection service

Due to the overwhelming quantity of material being received in Victoria, it has become necessary for Paintback to request the Geelong and Drysdale Resource Recovery Centres to stop accepting paint from any customer until further notice

This temporary suspension of services will be lifted as soon as the backlog of uncollected materials has been cleared sufficiently to allow the Paintback service to continue.
