Recycling

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), 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.

Tweed Community Recycling Centre

Our Community Recycling Centre is located at the Stotts Creek Resource Recovery Centre, Ledday’s Creek Road, Stotts Creek.

Opening Hours: Monday to Friday: 7am–3.45pm, Weekends and Public Holidays: 9am–3.45pm (closed Good Friday and Christmas Day)

Residents can now drop off the following household problem waste items for FREE, helping to minimise our community's impact on the environment:
  • Paint (oil and water based)

By separating your problem wastes and taking them to your local CRC, you are helping to improve recycling, reducing waste to landfill and looking after your local environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Second Hand Saturday?
Second Hand Saturday, the biggest day of garage sales on the North Coast.   It takes place in late September early October each year.
Tweed Shire Council, in conjunction with Ballina, Byron, Lismore, Kyogle, Richmond Valley and Clarence Valley Councils host the event collectively, meaning there will be hundreds of garage sales across the region from which to choose.
The event is supported by an interactive garage sale map and a search app to help people find the treasure of their dreams.  For further information please the Second Hand Saturday website and like the event on Facebook to keep in the loop for upcoming information.
