Community Recycling Centres

Community Recycling Centres are permanent drop-off centres for common household problem wastes that can’t be collected via council kerbside waste and recycling collection services. NSW householders can drop off problem wastes at these centres year round, free of charge.

To better protect our environment and the health of the community, the EPA is funding new and enhanced Community Recycling Centres across NSW. Local councils and other organisations operate these centres in partnership with the EPA. Funding for the centres comes from the waste levy, as part of Waste Less, Recycle More.

Cabonne Council operates a Community Recycling Centre at its Manildra Waste Management Facility.

  • Only household quantities of these materials will be accepted. As a guide, this is a maximum container of 20 litres or 20 kilograms for each waste type.
  • Some centres may accept other types of waste. Contact your local centre to find out if other items are accepted and if any charges apply.
  • Handle and transport your items carefully. Protect your vehicle by placing items on a protective sheet or tray in the boot to capture any leakages or breakages.
