The dump..

I always remember going to the dump with my dad as a kid to throw out old washing machines, beds, toys, the sink...

All I see now is a recycling facility? I have a tonne of mixed non really recyclable crap I want to get rid of... Where do I go?

I've being to a dump i a few times in the last few years.
One area is generally recycling and another area is a landfill area.

Modern dumps are impressive facilities, but its time to move on to alternatives such as incinerators etc

To answer your question; the recycling centre. There are all sorts of different receptacles including one for general mixed waste. All but refuse generally.

Fiver a bag for the waste in our local, it’s a great job if you’re having a clear out and have a few extra bags

same as deep rural; buy the different coloured bags and fill them and leave them at designated collection points,

and yet people will still throw it over the ditch.

Very little isn't recyclable or at least suitable for controlled disposal. Those centres will take pretty much anything, except they will charge you for non-recyclables.
