Campbelltown Community Recycling Centre


Our Community Recycling Centre is available for residents to drop off household problem waste. Limits apply.

Recycle your X-Rays

  • You can now drop off your X-Rays at our CRC for recycling
  • The service is for the film only
  • Please ensure any reports or paper (including the envelope) are removed before recycling.

Some household items do not belong in our kerbside bins – particularly paint, gas cylinders, oil, fluorescent lamps, batteries and smoke detectors. The most appropriate way to dispose of these items is to take them to our community recycling centre.

Plan your visit

Our CRC is free and easy to use. Plan your visit to ensure it goes as smoothly as possible:

  • Place your items safely in the boot of your car
  • Ensure the items are secure and won't move around while you are driving.
  • Quantities must be domestic only, commercial quantities (even if they are from your household) will be refused and you will be turned away.
  • Sort your materials before you arrive, customers with unsorted loads of materials will be asked to drive out and separate them before re-entering. This is to ensure that other customers will not be kept waiting.

Items you can drop off

Cardboard and Polystyrene

Only household quantities are accepted - car and ute loads ONLY.

Trucks and trailer loads are considered commercial volumes regardless of where the cardboard or polystyrene was generated and will be turned away. Our facility is not equipped to take commercial volumes.

So that other customers will not be kept waiting, please ensure that cardboard is flattened with NO strapping, packaging, polystyrene or any other rubbish.

  • If your cardboard is not flattened you will be asked to drive out and flatten it before re-entering.
  • If your cardboard contains other items and rubbish you will be asked to drive out and remove the other rubbish before re-entering.


Only clean hard white polystyrene will be accepted. Other varieties, including foam, poly wrap and bean bag beans are not recyclable and you will be asked to dispose of other types elsewhere.


Chemicals are not accepted at the Community Recycling Centre. These will still be accepted through the annual Household Chemical Clean Out day.

E-Waste items accepted

Eligible e-waste items include televisions, computers, printers, computer parts and accessories, and anything from the household with a cord that plugs in or with a battery.
