Community Recycling Centre

Community Recycling Centres (CRC) are drop-off centres for common household problem wastes that can’t be collected via council kerbside waste and recycling collection services.

At these centres, NSW householders can drop off their problem wastes free of charge. Centres are open year round.

Both Coleambally and Jerilderie Waste Depots have CRC sheds, however Jerilderie's is not currently operational.

Collection boxes are located at the Coleambally, Jerilderie and Darlington Point offices.

You can drop off the following items at our Council offices:

  • household batteries
  • smoke alarms
