Household problem waste

To help us increase community awareness and use of the Community Recycling Centre, we're keen to know more about your current knowledge, attitudes and behaviours regarding the disposal of household problem waste.

You may be surprised to know that many familiar products you use in your home, car, garage and shed can be hazardous to other people and the environment. Because of this, they can’t go into your red, yellow or green lidded bins.

These include:

  • batteries (household & car)
  • motor and other oils
  • paint
  • smoke detectors
  • fire extinguishers
  • gas bottles
  • fluro lights

Once you no longer have a use for them, they become household problem waste. If disposed of incorrectly, or released into the environment, these products can pollute our soil, contaminate our water and even cause physical harm to people and animals.

The good news is you can dispose of them for free at the Community Recycling Centre, where they are then processed and the reclaimed materials are used to make other products.

To help us increase community awareness and use of the centre, we want to know more about your current knowledge, attitudes and behaviours regarding this type of waste.

You’ll also go into the draw to win one of four $50 Bunnings vouchers just for taking the time to complete this short survey.
