Community Recycling Centres

Kempsey Shire Council’s Community Recycling Centre and Mobile Community Recycling Centre offer a free and easy solution for the disposal of household problem waste. Many of these materials can be reused and recycled if processed correctly.

Kempsey Shire Council now offers a Mobile Community Recycling Centre for problem household wastes. The trailer was constructed with funding from the NSW Environmental Trust and the NSW Environmental Protection Authority.

Our Mobile Community Recycling Centre aims to reduce illegal dumping and help our community stop stockpiling problem wastes in our homes. It is specifically designed for the safe collection and transport of problem household wastes such as:

  • polystyrene
  • household batteries
  • car batteries
  • electronic waste
  • gas bottles
  • fire extinguishers

  • smoke detectors

Only household quantities 20kg or 20L for free, other amounts incur a charge. Businesses are not eligible for free drop off at Community Recycling Centres. The mobile Community Recycling Centre now accepts mobile phones for MobileMuster and printer ink & toner cartridges for PlanetArk.
