Household Hazardous Waste is the term used for items that are typically found around the home that contain chemicals that can potentially be harmful to people, pets and the environment. Broken Hill City Council now operates a Community Recycling Centre (CRC) that enables residents to regularly drop off the following wastes free of charge:
Fluorescent light globes and tubes
Old gas bottles
The CRC is located at the Broken Hill Waste Management Facility (1 Wills St) and is accessible during normal operating hours. These wastes are collected by a registered contractor, transported and treated in a particular way so as not to cause harm to life, property or the environment.
See NSW EPA website for more information.
Non-commercial volumes of the following can be delivered to the Broken Hill Waste Management Facility -
Garden Chemicals (herbicides)
If you have larger volumes (over 20L) or commercial volumes contact Council to discuss disposal options
