What is hazardous waste?
Mobile Community Recycling Service
Parramatta and Cumberland City Councils have launched a Mobile Community Recycling Service, which provides residents with a free and easy way to recycle household hazardous wastes, including:
- gas bottles
- fire extinguishers
- batteries (car and household batteries)
- oils (motor and cooking)
- fluoro lights and smoke detectors
Residents must book a pick up on the Problem Waste website, or call Council's Waste Hotline on 9806 5544.
Only household quantities will be accepted in 20kg or 20L maximum container sizes.
Community Recycling Centre and household chemical clean out events
Another safe way to dispose of potentially hazardous household chemicals is at a Household Chemical Clean Out event. These events are free services held across NSW on specified dates.
