Many items cannot be placed in any of your kerbside bins, (including the red lidded bin) or your bulky waste collections. However, these items can all be taken to your local Waste Management Centre, most of them free of charge, including:

  • Items accepted at your local Community Recycling Centres (CRC) including:
    • gas bottles
    • paint
    • batteries (household and car)
    • oil (household and motor)
    • smoke alarms
    • fire extinguishers
    • light globes
  • old medicines – see
  • pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals
  • electronic goods
  • mattresses
  • tyres

We now have 8 CRCs located on the mid-north coast. Click the image for opening hours and address details.
