E-waste and Chemicals

There are certain types of hazardous waste that should not be put in household bins. This is because they can pose a real risk to our health and the environment if not disposed of correctly.

Electronic waste, mobile phones, batteries and lightbulbs should not be thrown in any bin, and chemicals should never be disposed of down the drain or into the soil.

Instead, Blue Mountains City Council offers services for safe disposal of all kinds of hazardous wastes. Please select the type of waste from the menu to find out about the service you require or consult our online A-Z of waste and recycling.

Please refer to your Resource Recovery Guide or click here for further information on items that can be recycled at your local Resource Recovery and Waste Management Facility.
