The recyling plant in Doonan offers some great bargains
The Doonan Recyling plant and tip is located at 561 eumundi noosa road, Doonan.

As well as having a waste disposal and regular tip (one of the few plants to dispose of asbestos) I often pop into the recycling area if I'm in search of something cheap but good.



There's always a friendly employee handy if you ever need any help to move something into your car and boy, do they stock a large range of goods. I rarely walk out of there empty handed.

The re-clycling plant works hand in hand with the noosa community training centre which helps people get back into the workforce after they've been unemployed for a while. They all start the same way completing an 18 weeks training programme and if you're lucky and there happens to be a vacancy - you get kept on. It employs about a dozen people at this site and as I said, they're more than helpful to accommodate your request.

Open from 8.15am to 4 pm - 7 days a week except public holidays.

Donations come from the general public and they often do the on street pick up collections. There are a couple of carpenters working there also, which make lovely timber recycled furniture such as this beautiful cabinet made of Oregon timber .

Recycled cabinet anyone?


This is one recycling plant that's giving back to the community by selling and producing cheap and quality goods which of course also reduce the amount of land fill. A win win scenario for all.

And my latest addition to my kitchen for the pricey sum of $10. (It works really well.)
