Community Recycling Centre

Our Community Recycling Centre (CRC) is a free and easy way to recycle problem waste from your household. Items are handled so they don’t harm the environment.

The CRC also accepts regular household recyclables like cardboard, paper, steel cans, rigid plastic bottles and containers, and glass bottles and jars.

Our CRC is a NSW EPA Waste Less Recycle More project funded from the waste levy.

The centre is located at our waste disposal depot at Kembla Grange. Turn right at the roundabout before the weighbridge and follow the signs.

The Community Recycling Centre accepts:

  • Paint
  • Computers, televisions, printers, scanners smoke detectors and mobile phones
  • Gas bottles and fire extinguishers
  • Fluoro globes and tubes
  • Household and car batteries
  • Motor and other oils
  • Scrap metal – this includes many whitegoods made mostly of metal, like microwaves, washing machines, dryers and dishwashers
  • Fridges and freezers
  • Cardboard, paper and mixed recyclables that won’t fit in your yellow bin.
