Opening of the St Peters Community Recycling Centre
|Joined Clr Byrne (the Mayor) and Clr Iskander, Council and EPA Officers at the opening of the St Peters Comunity Recycling Centre this morning.|
Ofcourse I took along my own bucket of items for recyling and now have the honour of being the first depositer of batteries and light globes - as it happens an incandescent, a fluoro and some LEDs.
This is the second Inner West Council Recycling Centre, the other is at Leichhardt.
Residents can drop off their household problem waste at two Community Recycling Centres in the Inner West.

For more information about what you can drop off and what happens to these things after you deposit them see https://www.innerwest.nsw.gov.au/live/waste-and-recycling/tricky-waste-items/recycling-centres/community-recycling-centres
The Community Recycling Centres are set up to help transport hazardous waste safely to where it can be processed properly.
The items the Centre accepts are everyday items which have come to the end of their life in our homes and delivering them to the Recycling Centre is the start of the process to recycle the materials they are made off.
The centre accepts items which should not be put in garbage bins to end up in landfill including Computers and TVs; Gas bottles; Fire extinguishers; Paints; Fluorescent globes and tubes; Car and household batteries; Motor and cooking oil and Smoke detectors.
