Fast Cash for Bottles, Cans and Scrap Metal

Nixon Road runs off Mt Barker Road between Hahndorf and Littlehampton. About 150m up Nixon road on your left is a road called Windmill Hill for some reason. Turn there and you’ll immediately see the entrance sign for Scout Recycling Centre Adelaide Hills.

Bring your bottles, cans, scrap metal and car batteries and swap them for cash. We accept all deposit containers for 10 cents refund and we’ll take wine bottles, and clean milk cartons and non-deposit containers off your hands as well. Make sure the containers are clean and please always remove the screw caps from plastic bottles. Leave cans uncrushed.

Bring your cardboard and newspaper along and we’ll get rid of it for you in a way that keeps it out of landfill.

Scout Recycling Centre Adelaide Hills serves the communities of Mt Barker, Verdun, Balhannah Oakbank, Little Hampton, Bridgewater, Aldgate, Stirling, Crafers, Mylor and Echunga.

Get paid more for your scrap metal by separating the iron from the copper, brass, lead and other non-ferrous metals. If you’ve got a large load, talk to manager, David Duthie – he’ll look after you.
