Waste depots - Shoalhaven City Council
Waste Depots

Council actively supports and promotes recycling to the community due to the wide-reaching environmental benefits that recycling offers. Increases in recycling efforts by our community leads to a reduction in waste buried in landfill as well as less pressure on natural resources. Together, Council and the community can work to protect the beautiful and naturally diverse environment in which we live. 

Council has 10 waste and recycling depots at various locations throughout the Shoalhaven, which you can see on this Google map (new window).

Waste Depot Locations

Some separated recyclables are accepted free of charge including scrap metal, car bodies, fridges (degassing fee applies), washing machines, car batteries, & motor oil (up to 20 litres).

Council has Buy Back centres at 7 of its waste and recycling depots, where residents can deliver, free of charge, items the contractor thinks may have reuse value e.g. old furniture, toys, whitegoods, kitchen and bathroom fittings, some building materials etc.

Waste accepted at CRCs for recycling includes paints, oils, batteries, light globes, gas bottles, smoke detectors and fire extinguishers.

CRCs are located at all of Council's Recycling and Waste Depots.
