World Class Bottle & Can Recycling Depot

The Scout Recycling Centre Pooraka specialises in recycling bottles and cans and has an amazing automatic sorting machine that will count your containers so quickly and accurately that you will be amazed. Being a high volume bottle and can specialist, this depot doesn’t recycle metals, please visit nearby Scout Recycling Centre Greenfields.

Our Pooraka depot pays cash (10 cents) for every deposit container and we will happily accept non-deposit containers such as wine bottles. Please always remove the screw caps from plastic bottles and don’t crush the cans, and keep them clean.

Scout Recycling Centre Pooraka is convenient for the suburbs of: Mawson Lakes, Ingle Farm, Para Hills, Parafield, Gulfview Heights, Modbury, Ridgehaven, Golden Grove, Cavan Gepps Cross, Blair Athol and Northfield. Manager, Mark Hage and his team will be pleased to look after you.

Ahead of the game in 2013 Scouts visited recycling operations in Denmark, Germany and Iceland to learn more about the latest technology & best practice in recycling. Two years later Scouts proudly formed a partnership with envirobank, Australia’s largest depot technology service provider to launch the first hi-tech recycling operation in South Australia.

If you are looking for a faster more accurate container count why not visit us at Pooraka and the watch the machine in action
