New community recycling centre opens in Liverpool

At 4:03 pm 0 Comment Print

A new community recycling centre (CRC) has opened in Liverpool, making it easier and safer for residents to dispose of problem waste.

 

The new recycling centre is located at Liverpool Council’s Rose Street Operations Depot. It will be open between 8am and 3pm (Monday to Saturday) and will take all problem household waste including:

  • water-based and oil-based paints;
  • used motor and cooking oils;
  • lead-acid and hand-held batteries;
  • gas cylinders and fire extinguishers;
  • conventional tube and compact fluorescent lamps;
  • smoke detectors;
  • polystyrene; and
  • televisions and computers

Environment Minister Rob Stokes said the centre will be a great asset to Liverpool residents, who will now be able to easily dispose of household problem waste that can’t be placed in any household bins.

“By making it easier for people to do the right thing and dispose of their waste safely and correctly, we are not only helping to reduce the incidence of illegal dumping and waste to landfill, but we are also protecting our environment and the health of our communities,” Mr Stokes said.

Liverpool CRC is partially funded by a $250,000 grant from the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) as part of the NSW Government’s Waste Less Recycle More initiative.

Existing Chemical CleanOut events will still be run throughout the year.
