Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) are helping to keep problem waste out of problem spaces! Since they were set up in 2012, 96 CRCs across NSW have collected 13,205 tonnes of household problem waste. Recycling has also increased by 2.7 million tonnes in the same period!
Did you know we have eight CRCs across the Hunter region!?
The Hunter’s CRCs are part of the network of 96 facilities across NSW, operating under the Waste Less, Recycle More initiative.
The CRC accepts the following problem wastes for free:
- Water-based and oil-based paints
- Used motor oils and other oils
- Lead-acid and hand-held batteries
- Gas cylinders and fire extinguishers
- Conventional tube and compact fluorescent lamps
- Smoke detectors
- E-waste and mobile phones
So next time you are doing a Spring clean, renovating or doing a clean-out, don’t forget to drop off your problem waste at one of our CRCs!
