Ballina Junktion Revolve Shop

Ballina Junktion is a resource recovery shop that aims to divert material that can be recycled or reprocessed from landfill. It is operated by Momentum Collective, a not for profit community organisation and the shop supports their programs.

Items for Ballina Junktion must be taken over the weighbridge and enter the Waste Management Centre. This prevents Ballina Junktion being inundated with unwanted goods illegally dumped at the front of the premises and assists their staff to focus on resource recovery.

Open: 9.30am - 3.30pm 7 days (excluding public holidays)

Pollution Incident Response Management Plan

This plan has been developed to document the processes required to prepare for and respond to pollution incidents for the Ballina Shire Council's Waste Management Facility (EPA Licence No. 6350) and ensure that hazards to the environment, human health and safety are reduced, if not eliminated. It has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 and Protection of the Environment Operations (General) Regulation 2009.
