Opening of Blaxland Community Recycling Centre
The new Blaxland Community Recycling Centre (CRC) has officially opened, where householders can drop off problem wastes such as paints, oils, gas bottles, fluoro lights, smoke detectors and batteries for free.

The CRC has been established by the Blue Mountains City Council who received a grant of $83,875 from the NSW Government’s Waste Less, Recycle More initiative. This is the second CRC for the region. The Blaxland CRC expands the service which is already offered in Katoomba, making access to problem waste disposal easier and more convenient.

Blue Mountains Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill, said: “Establishing this recycling facility will help keep problem wastes out of landfill and improve recycling rates.

“We want to encourage communities to recycle problem wastes to help ensure safe and environmentally responsible disposal.

“Much of the problem waste dropped off at a CRC can be recycled. If this isn’t possible, it is properly treated before safe disposal.”

State Member for the Blue Mountains, Trish Doyle said: “This centre will complement the community’s existing recycling services, minimise waste and increase recycling.”

This centre is part of a network of over 100 facilities being established across NSW.

The Blaxland CRC is located at Blaxland Waste Management Facility, Attunga Road, Blaxland. It is open 7 days a week, 8am – 4.45pm (Closed Good Friday and Christmas Day). 

The Blaxland CRC accepts the following problem wastes for free:

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