Free events to get rid of garden organics and household chemicals

Thursday 11 August 2022

We're running several events this month to help our community drop off their extra garden waste and household chemicals.

The Household Chemical Collection and Garden Organics Waste Drop-off is the perfect opportunity to get rid of waste safely and for free.

For more information about the free community recycling events, including what you’re able to drop-off, please visit our Waste website.

Garden Organics Waste Drop off

The free green waste drop-off is an alternative to your household green-lidded bins. Get rid of your extra small branches and shrubs, fallen leaves, twigs and debris.

Make sure to bring proof that you live in the Wollongong Local Government Area, such as a driver's licence.

The two events will be held on:

Community members are reminded to stay in their vehicles when attending.

Household Chemical Collection

Say goodbye to household chemicals and problem waste! You can drop off items such as garden chemicals, cleaning products, poisons, acids, batteries, pool chemicals, gas bottles, motor oils and fuels, and paint and we’ll dispose of them safely for you.

We only accept household quantities of chemicals (20L or 20kg) and up to 100L (in 20L containers) of paint.

This event will be held on:

  • Sunday 28 August, between 9am to 3.30pm at North Dalton Park Carpark Fairy Meadow

For details, see our Household Chemical Cleanout event. Community members are reminded to stay in their vehicles when attending.

This is a NSW Environment Protection Authority Waste Less Recycle More initiative funded by the waste levy.
