Tweed Shire Council provides a wide range of free recycling options as outlined below. Small, hard to recycle items: household batteries (up to 6 volt), CDs and DVDs, printer cartridges, and mobile phones can be dropped off at the recycling stations located in the foyers of the Tweed and Murwillumbah Civic Centres.
Apart from your every-day kerbside recycling collection (yellow lid bin) many other items can also be taken to Tweed Community Recycling Centre (see info below) at Stotts Creek Resource Recovery Centre - Council's one-stop-shop for all recyclable items.
