Want to be a GREAT Sort ?

You can recycle more than your containers at Paraquad Industries!  You can also drop off pre-loved quality clothing, books, furniture, working electrical appliances and bric-a-brac. Your donations to Paraquad not only support the circular economy, they also create employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

I want to get rid of my containers but don’t want a refund.

Easy! The West Metro Recycling Centre will accept donations of eligible containers for Paraquad Industries, but cannot issue refunds. Alternatively, you can continue to recycle your eligible containers in your yellow-lidded bin.
