Dropping your waste at the tip?

Flood affected Hawkesbury residents - the Waste Management Centre will soon be receiving flood waste for FREE

The Hawkesbury Waste Management Centre will shortly accept eligible flood waste for free from flood effected residents from the Hawkesbury LGA.

Council is working with State Government Agencies to establish, as quickly as possible, flood waste operations that will allow flood waste to safely and efficiently be dropped off at the Waste Management Facility. Council will notify the community once the Waste Management Facility is operational to receive flood waste.

If you have been flood effected, and need to drop off flood waste watch this page or our website for information on when the Waste Management Facility is able to receive flood waste for free. You can also call Council on 4560 4444 and register your details to receive a notification once the Waste Management Facility is able to receive flood waste for free.

Until then, remember the Waste Management Facility is still open, 7 days a week, 8am to 3:45pm, closed public holidays.

For those residential properties that have been inundated by the recent flood event, further information will be provided shortly about a flood waste collection pick up from your property.

Currently standard fees and charges still apply, however, a number of items were already free to drop off; including the following;

  • Batteries (household)
  • Batteries (car)
  • Bicycles
  • Computers and Televisions
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Fluorescent globes and tubes
  • Gas bottles
  • Motor oils
  • Other oils
  • Paint (up to 100 litres of paint can be dropped off, in containers no larger than 20 litres)

·   Paper and unwaxed cardboard (including hardcover and paperback books). Note: Good quality books can be donated to the Re-use Shed.
