The township of Gilgandra has a kerbside recycling collection and collection points are available at Gilgandra Waste Facility, Armatree and Tooraweenah. Gilgandra Shire Council is a member of the voluntary waste group known as Netwaste. It is our aim to have recycling facilties for all rural waste facilities by 2016.
The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has commenced a program to establish a network of Community Recycling Centres (CRC’s) across NSW. The primary aim of this program is to provide a means for households in NSW to safely dispose of materials that have the potential to be a hazard to the environment or to public health, or, are problematic to safe waste and recycling collection and disposal. CRC’s are designed and operated to temporarily store these materials safely until they can be recycled or disposed of appropriately.
The materials being targeted by the EPA for collection at Community Recycling Centres are:
Householders are able to deposit household waste problem materials at any facility that is part of the program, regardless of the Council area in which they reside. Materials accepted from commercial or business operators will not form part of this program.
