Household problem waste

Some household items are not suitable to be placed into your kerbside bins and instead require special treatment for disposal, so rather than have them clog up your home, shed or garage, simply bring them to the Albury Recycling Centre.

The household problem waste section is a joint initiative with NSW EPA, which contributed more than $200K towards the facility.
