Why use the Community Recycling Centres?

Most of the waste accepted at Community Recycling Centres can be reused or recycled. By sorting your waste and taking it to your local centre, you will:

  • help improve resource recovery rates
  • save water, energy and other valuable natural resources

Storing and transporting your wastes

Handle and transport your materials carefully and safely. Protect your vehicle by placing items on a protective sheet or tray in the boot to capture any leakages or breakages.

What we’ve collected so far?

Since they opened, the community has, through our CRC network, avoided 290,000kg of problem waste from ending up in landfill. Most of this is destined for recycling, which is a great outcome. Well done to everyone who has participated and please, keep spreading the word! The most commonly dropped off items are paint which accounts for 219,000kg of the total.
