Check out Richmond Valley Council’s two tip shops next time you want to pick up a “dirt” cheap bargain.
The Casino (Nammoona) Tip Shop and Evans Head Tip Shop are a fantastic place to shop while supporting the recycling of second hand and used goods which still have life left in them.
Nammoona Tip Shop is growing and there are some wonderful treasures to be found every day from vintage items, books, furniture and more.
We are committed to resource recovery, reuse and diverting as much as possible from landfill.
The tip shops offer a huge range of useful items including tools, kitchenware, furniture, gardening implements – including wheel barrows, lawnmowers, and bins – to books and pictures, homewares, toys, bikes and plenty of other recycled items simply too numerous to list.
Some come in today and grab a bargain from the Nammoona Tip Shop, or the Evans Head Tip Shop.
