Community Recycling Centre
Household problem waste accepted for recycling
Not all household waste can be put in your kerbside bins. However, you can visit our Community Recycling Centre located at Surf Beach Waste Management Facility to drop off various problem wastes for recycling, such as paint, smoke detectors, and household and car batteries (see below), all year-round for free. Only household quantities of these materials will be accepted. As a guide, this is a maximum container of 20 litres or 20 kilograms for each waste type.
You will need to make sure that you handle and transport your items carefully. You can protect your vehicle by placing items on a protective sheet or tray in the boot to capture any leakages or breakages.
Many of these materials can be reused and recycled if processed correctly. Recycling helps our environment because it saves water, energy and natural resources.
Dangerous goods and items other than those listed on this page will not be accepted.
This project is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
