Community Recycling Centres (04/12/2018)


Many household problem wastes can be recycled if disposed correctly – and it’s easy! 

 Community Recycling Centres are located across our region  (you’ll find them at the tip) and it’s FREE to drop off!  Have you taken a look yet?

Your CRC collects household quantities of problem wastes (think paint, gas bottles, motor oil and batteries) which can’t be collected via the regular council garbage or recycling services.  They are open all year round, just visit or your local Council website for locations, opening hours and what you can drop off for free.

 If you’re already one of the many households in Kiama, Shellharbour, Shoalhaven, Wingecarribee or Wollongong who have used your local CRC… thank you!  You are helping to keep problem waste out of landfill.  Over the past year we have collected 543,329 kg of problem waste for recycling and safe disposal.  What a great result
