Recycling just got easier…

Last week recycling tricky household waste got easier with the installation of two mini recycling stations in Yamba and Grafton.

Thanks to the staff at Treelands Drive Community Centre and the Grafton Regional library, visitors can now dispose of mobile phones, household batteries and smoke detectors – items that cannot be placed in household recycling bins and should never be sent to landfill.

Larger community recycling centres located in Townsend and Grafton can receive gas bottles, fire extinguishers, paint, fluoros, car batteries, motor and cooking oil (up to 20 litres). The good news is that all these items will be recycled and you can drop them off for FREE!

For more information on what can be recycled at our Community Recycling Centres, please visit or phone Clarence Valley Council 6643 0200.
