What is a Community Recycling Centre (CRC)?

    Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) are drop-off centres for common ‘household problem wastes’ that can’t be collected via council kerbside waste and recycling collection services. 

    What can I drop off at the CRC?

    A new Centre is being established in Artarmon and will allow householders to drop off their problem wastes free of charge. 

    Centres will accept:

    • Water-based and oil-based paints 
    • Motor oils and other oils
    • car batteries and household batteries
    • gas bottles and fire extinguishers
    • fluorescent globes and tubes
    • smoke detectors
    • televisions and computers


    How is this initiative funded?

    This is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy. Visit www.epa.nsw.gov.au/recyclingcentres to find out more.
