Katoomba RRWMF

Katoomba Resource Recovery and Waste Management Facility (RRWMF) currently provides the following free waste disposal services to the Blue Mountains community:

There is a small vehicle area that allows safe drop-off for:

  • Household recycling if source separated/sorted and uncontaminated
  • Scrap metal and car bodies 
  • Car batteries*, gas bottles*, fire extinguishers* and engine oil* 
  • Paint*, smoke detectors*, fluoro globes and tubes*, other oil* and household batteries* (as this is a household service, a nominal 20L or 20kg limit applies. Chemicals from commercial or industrial premises will NOT be accepted.)
  • Twice yearly collection of hazardous household chemicals 
  • Televisions and computers* see our e-waste section for further details.

* Non-residents can also bring these items to Katoomba RRWMF for free.

If you have other household chemicals not listed above, these can be disposed of for free during a CleanOut event. Often much harsher chemicals require disposal under the supervision of an Industrial Chemist, which is why we can’t accept them all year round. Check our Chemical CleanOut section for further details.

Items accepted at Katoomba RRWMF during a Chemical CleanOut event ONLY:

  • Acids and alkalis
  • Paint-related products 
  • Poisons 
  • Motor fuels and fluids 
  • Pool chemicals 
  • Pesticides and herbicides 
  • Household cleaners and solvents 
     

Come and visit our Katoomba RRWMF Reuse Shed – this is where we turn trash to treasure. Any items too good to dismantle for recycling are given away for free!

Larger quantities of recyclables can also be disposed of free of charge if source separated/sorted and uncontaminated. Refer to our fees and charges for more information on what items can be disposed of for free, and which items incur charges. Items charged are calculated by vehicle weight on a weighbridge at the entrance to the facility.

Our fees and charges are also available to download on the right hand side of this page.

AS KATOOMBA RRWMF IS NO LONGER A LANDFILL SITE, WE CANNOT ACCEPT CLEAN FILL, ASBESTOS, ANIMAL CARCASSES OR OTHER MATERIALS THAT REQUIRE SUPERVISED AND/OR IMMEDIATE BURIAL. THE FACILITIES FOR THESE SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE AT BLAXLAND RRWMF ONLY.
