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.

Telephone: 02 6670 7400

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)
  • Gas bottles and fire extinguishers
  • Fluoro globes and tubes
  • Household and car batteries
  • Motor oils and other oils
  • Smoke detectors

Other items that can be taken to the CRC include:

  • Electronic waste (e-waste) - but this doesn't include e-waste such as audio speakers, sound systems or electrical kitchen items such as jugs or toasters
Only household quantities of the above materials will be accepted. As a guide a maximum container of 20 litres or 20 kilograms each of the wastes listed (except paint which is now 100L).

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.

Community Recycling Centres are Free for all NSW residents. For more information: Tweed Community Recycling Centre Brochure. To locate other CRCs across the Northern Rivers region visit North East Waste or NSW EPA Recycling Centres.

This is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded through the waste levy.
