Find Community Recycling Centres and Household Chemical CleanOut events

Please safely store your household problem waste in clearly labelled containers, in a cool dry place away from children and pets until you can visit a CRC or CleanOut event.

Common household problems wastes, including fluorescent lights, smoke detectors, paint, gas bottles, fire extinguishers, batteries and oils, can be taken to your local Community Recycling Centre throughout the year.

If there is no Community Recycling Centre in your area, you can take these items and others to a Chemical CleanOut event.
