Recycling Centre Opens

​A new local Community Recycling Centre was officially opened on Wednesday 12 April by the Hon. Anthony Roberts MP.

The Community Recycling Centre (CRC) is located in Artarmon and services residents across the Lane Cove, Hunters Hill, North Sydney, Ryde and Willoughby council areas thanks to assistance from the NSW EPA.

The free drop-off service helps provide safe, responsible disposal points for household problem waste that cannot go in your kerbside bins.

The new CRC is located at: 8 Waltham Road, Artarmon

Opening Hours:

Saturday and Sunday: 8:00am – 4:00pm

Monday, Tuesday and Friday: 8:00am – 2:00pm

You can drop off the following items for FREE

  • Paint (oil and water based)
  • Gas bottles
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Fluorescent light globes and tubes
  • Electronic Waste (eg. computers, TVs, electronic equipment and small electrical appliances)  White goods are not accepted
  • Household batteries
  • Lead Acid Batteries eg car & motorbike batteries
  • Motor and other oils (including cooking oil)
  • Smoke detectors
  • Mobile phones
  • X-ray films

Only household quantities of the above materials will be accepted.  This is equivalent to a maximum of 20 litres or 20 kilograms for each of the items listed above.

Most of the items accepted at the CRC can be reused or recycled. By sorting our waste and taking it to a recycling centre, we are:

  • keeping potentially hazardous waste out of landfill
  • helping improve recycling rates and
  • saving water, energy and other valuable natural resources.

Storing and transporting waste

Please 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 orbreaks.
