Four different coloured recycling bins

Hawkesbury City Council is starting construction of a new Community Recycling Centre at Hawkesbury City Waste Management Facility in South Windsor. Due to open in early 2018, this new facility will provide a seven-day-a-week drop off facility for household paint, batteries, motor and cooking oil, florescent light globes, fire extinguishers, and LPG cylinders.

The new facility will complement the Council's long-running Household Chemical Cleanout events by providing a dedicated drop-off venue for high volume, low toxicity and common household chemicals. The Household Chemical Cleanout events will continue in the future and provide safe disposal opportunities for high toxicity chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, acids and corrosive substances, and other chemical wastes.

This new facility reflects Council’s commitment to effectively managing the community’s problem waste streams, with mattress recycling and a free household TV and Computer recycling program already in operation at Hawkesbury City Waste Management Facility.

The Community Recycling Centre is a $216,000 initiative funded by the NSW Environment Protection Authority’s Waste Less, Recycle More Program.
