Have you been to Hornsby Shire Coun­cil’s Com­mu­nity Re­cy­cling Cen­tre yet? You need to try out this great new fa­cil­ity, which is re­ceiv­ing glow­ing praise from ev­ery­body who vis­its. It’s an easy and safe way to get rid of a range of house­hold prob­lem waste items that are unsuitable for your bins at home.

One of the best fea­tures is the spe­cially de­signed drive-through that makes it so sim­ple, but even bet­ter is the fact it’s en­tirely free of charge.

House­hold prob­lem waste items that can be dropped off at the cen­tre in­clude paints, gas bot­tles, house­hold and car bat­ter­ies, light globes, smoke de­tec­tors, TVs and com­put­ers, printer ton­ers and mo­bile phones.

NEXT COUN­CIL MEET­ING There’s quite a bit of un­cer­tainty around the re­cy­cling in­dus­try at the mo­ment, due mainly to China’s de­ci­sion to ac­cept less re­cy­clable ma­te­rial, but right now it’s busi­ness as usual in Hornsby Shire.

We are keep­ing a close eye on the sit­u­a­tion and will let you know if any­thing changes, but for now there is no need to worry. Did you know that last year alone we re­cy­cled 14,000 tonnes of co-min­gled ma­te­rial? That’s a ster­ling achieve­ment that we want to con­tinue.
