Hazardous Waste

What is hazardous waste?

Hazardous wastes are wastes with properties that make them dangerous or potentially harmful to human health or the environment, and cannot be placed in your bins or council clean ups.


Mobile Community Recycling Service

Parramatta and Cumberland City Councils have launched a Mobile Community Recycling Service, which provides residents with a free and easy way to recycle household hazardous wastes, including:

  • gas bottles
  • fire extinguishers
  • paint
  • batteries (car and household batteries)
  • oils (motor and cooking)
  • fluoro lights and smoke detectors

Residents must book a pick up on the Problem Waste website, or call Council's Waste Hotline on 9806 5544.

Only household quantities will be accepted in 20kg or 20L maximum container sizes.

Community Recycling Centre and household chemical clean out events

Another safe way to dispose of potentially hazardous household chemicals is at a Household Chemical Clean Out event. These events are free services held across NSW on specified dates. Click here for the next Chemical Clean Out Event in the Parramatta area.

Alternatively, you can check out one of the permanent Community Recycling Centres near you and drop off an acceptable range of hazardous household chemicals.
