Best recycling and 2nd hand shop in greater Sydney?
Mood:  happy
Topic: local news


 Near Hawkesbury City Council Waste Management Facility is a privately run Junkyard also known locally as the Two Trains for obvious reasons when you see the frontage of the place over 4 hectares or more.

After some 15 years knocking about recycling and environmental issues we were very surprised to come across this place recently set in fairly rural location: Go 4 km south west on George St out of Windsor then north westerly on Blacktown Rd after the main roundabout/3 way junction then first left into Bennett Rd.

This place is well known to Hawkesbury and western Sydney type people but not former inner city folks more used to the humble Bower at Marrickville for comparison. The model is obviously different not least rental variations and this place is quite huge by comparison. The 2 Trains place is distinctive for having many sheds and converted buses full of stuff by theme, whether AV entertainment, clothes, kitchen, auto, furniture, then outdoors for mowers, baths etc etc. They pay a scavenger fee by weight to Hawkesbury Council and get fair custom for their sorted throwouts.

Here are a few pics above and below for the recycler and budget hoards to slaver over, with apologies for the glare and shadow effects on some images taken late afternoon into the west.
