Problem waste dropped off at Community Recycling Centres will be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. By sorting your waste and taking it to your local centre, you will:
• Save money – it’s free!
• Reduce waste to landfill
• Support a safer and cleaner environment
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 leaks or breaks.
Stow until you can go
Storing and transporting your problem wastes
When you only have small items e.g. batteries or a small quantity of household problem waste to dispose of, it’s not always practical or convenient to visit your local CRC. Instead set up easy and safe storage at home and ‘stow until you can go’ to make the most of your next trip to the CRC.

Australians use thousands of tonnes of batteries every year. Most will end up in landfill but they don’t have to!

Community Recycling Stations
Community Recycling Stations (CRS) are small cabinets generally placed at libraries and council facilities such as community centres, to allow for the convenient and free drop-off of small quantities of common household problem wastes.
