Community Recycling Centres


Federation Council and the NSW EPA have recently opened two Community Recycling Centres (CRC’s) in Corowa and Urana.

Many familiar products you use in your home, car, garage and shed can be hazardous to other people and the environment. Because of this, they cannot be disposed of in your red, yellow or green lidded bins.

These include:

  • batteries (household only).
  • motor & other oils (5-20 ltrs motor oils and other oils). 
  • paint.
  • smoke detectors.
  • fire extinguishers.
  • gas bottles.
  • fluro lights.

Once you no longer have a use for these products, they become household problem waste. If disposed of incorrectly, or released into the environment, these products can pollute our soil, contaminate our water and even cause physical harm to people and animals.

The good news is you can dispose of them for FREE at the following CRC’s. The products are then processed and the reclaimed materials used to make other products.
