Eurobodalla Shire Council
Surf Beach Community Recycling Centre
$237,424

Council will build a Community Recycling Centre (CRC) to take household problem wastes at the Surf Beach Waste Management Facility. Construction of the purpose built facility for household problem wastes will provide an opportunity for the community to safely dispose of paint, gas bottles, smoke detectors, oils, batteries and fluorescent globes and tubes. The CRC will provide environmental, social and economic benefits to the community.

Fairfield City Council
Fairfield City Council - Community Recycling Drop-Off Centre
$196,495

Council will upgrade the current Recycling Drop-Off Centre at Wetherill Park to collect, recycle and safely dispose of household problem wastes. While the centre already collects scrap metal, household recycling, e-waste, gas bottles, car batteries, and motor oils, this upgrade will expand the service to include paints, household batteries, cooking oils, fluorescent light bulbs and smoke detectors. This upgrade will reduce hazardous waste being landfilled or illegally dumped and improve resource recovery rates. Residents from neighbouring areas will also have access to the centre.

Gosford City Council
Gosford City Council - Community Recycling Centre
$164,901

Gosford City Council will establish a Community Recycling Centre for household problem wastes at the Woy Woy landfill and will form part of council's broader resource recovery operations. The design will include the construction of a segregated undercover drive-through storage facility which will allow residents to safely dispose of their problem wastes. Residents can drop off motor oil, batteries, gas cylinders, fluorescent lamps, smoke detectors and paints free of charge.

Orange City Council
Orange Community Recycling Centre
$190,756

The new Community Recycling Centre (CRC) at the Ophir Road Resource Recovery Centre will collect batteries, fluorescent lamps, paint, smoke detectors, gas cylinders and oils. The CRC will form part of a comprehensive resource recovery operation which also includes the collection of household recyclables, a recovery shop, scrap metal, organics processing, concrete, masonry and brick recovery, e-waste, construction and demolition sorting and drumMuster. Once completed, the community will have a safe and convenient way to dispose of unwanted problem wastes in a responsible and environmentally sound manner.

Queanbeyan City Council
Queanbeyan Waste Minimisation Centre - Community Recycling Facility
$116,670

As part of the development of the Queanbeyan Waste Minimisation Centre, a new service for the free collection of household problem waste will be established.

Once the upgrade is complete, paint, gas bottles, smoke detectors, oils, batteries and fluorescent globes and tubes can be dropped off year-round.

Snowy River Shire Council
Snowy River Community Recycling Centre (Drop-off)
$139,300

A Community Recycling Centre will be constructed at the Jindabyne Regional Waste Management Facility for residents across the region to drop off their household problem wastes for recycling and/or safe disposal. Oils, paint, batteries, gas bottles and smoke detectors will be able to be dropped off at the new facility all year round. Funding will provide new facility infrastructure, security fencing, gates and lights. The facility will promote and foster responsible waste management and resource recovery across the community.

Sutherland Shire Council
Sutherland Shire Community Recycling Centre
$223,164

The Sutherland Shire Council Community Recycling Centre will be a purpose built facility for residents to drop off household problem wastes six days a week. Located centrally in the local government area, this centre will provide a much needed service to the community and discourage illegal dumping and stockpiling of household problem wastes. Once operational, this facility will align with council’s vision of a ‘low waste future with best practice waste management’ by reducing waste to landfill and minimising environmental risks associated with household problem wastes.

Wentworth Shire Council
Buronga Landfill - Community Recycling Centre
$100,000

The Community Recycling Centre will provide a new, improved service for residents to drop off their household problem wastes for free. The facility will be open every day for residents to drop off wastes that cannot go in their household bins including paints, oils, gas cylinders, batteries and smoke detectors. Once dropped off at the centres, they will be safely disposed or recycled.
