Community Recycling Centre

A FREE and easy solution for the disposal of household problem waste. Check out what you can drop off.

Not all household waste can be put in your kerbside bins.  Many materials can be reused and recycled if processed correctly.  Recycling helps our environment because it saves water, energy and natural resources.

Located at Merimbula Waste & Recycling Depot, our Community Recycling Centre aims to make it easy for shire residents to safely and conveniently dispose of problem wastes like paint, gas bottles, fire extinguishers, motor and cooking oils, car and household batteries, fluorescent tubes and globes and smoke detectors.

Gass bottles.
Fire extinquishers.
Fluoro globes and tubes.
Car batteries.
Household batteries.
Motor oils.
Other oils
Smoke detectors.

The service is FREE to householders and only household quantities will be accepted.  20kg or 20L maximum container size.

Please transport your materials carefully..

Dangerous goods and items other than those listed will not be accepted.

This project is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.  Visit

Mobile Community Recycling Centre

A free disposal service for problem household waste is hitting the road in the Bega Valley, travelling between waste transfer stations in Eden, Wallagoot and Bermagui.

Check the table below to see when the mobile recycling centre will be stopping at a transfer station near you.

You can bring along your old batteries, paint, gas bottles, fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, cooking oils and fluorescent globes and tubes, and we’ll do the rest.

When the trailer is full of problem waste, we take it to the main CRC in Merimbula for sorting and processing.

If you have problem waste you need to dispose of but can’t wait for the mobile CRC, the drop-off centre at the Merimbula Waste Transfer Station is open during normal hours.
