Fast Cash for Bottles, Cans and Scrap Metal

Convert your cans and bottles to cash at the Scout Recycling Centre Gawler. Manager Shane Van Den Ham and the team will be only too pleased to accept ALL of your containers and give you 10 cents cash refund for all deposit cans and bottles. We’ll also take your wine bottles and other non-deposit bottles and cans (including washed milk cartons).

Please remove the screw caps from the bottles – it makes them much easier to recycle.

When not counting your bottles and cans for refunds the team at Scout Recycling Centre Gawler will be busy compacting cardboard, bottles and cans into giant slabs ready for trucking to recycling plants for processing.

If you live in the nearby at Willaston, Gawler, Evanston or Roseworthy, we are just down the road. If you live in the nearby Barossa Valley(Lyndoch, Tanunda, Nuriootpa) or out to Freeling and Kapunda then be sure to chuck your bottles and cans in the boot and call in to Scout Recycling Centre Willaston on your way into town.

Scouts will pay CASH for

  • Deposit Drink Containers
  • Scrap Steel
  • Car Bodies
  • Non-Ferrous Metals
  • Car Batteries

Scouts will also accept

  • Non-deposit glass drink and food containers
  • Non-deposit plastic bottles (e.g. milk bottles)
