Why use the Northern Sydney CRC?
Most of the items accepted at the CRC can be reused or recycled. By sorting our waste and taking it to a recycling centre, we are:
- Keeping potentially hazardous waste out of landfill
- Helping improve recycling rates
- Saving water, energy, and other valuable natural resources
NSROC received a grant from the NSW EPA through the NSW Environmental Trust with funding from the waste levy to establish the Community Recycling Centre. The centre is operated by North Sydney Council on behalf of the City of Ryde and the Councils of Hunter’s Hill, Lane Cove, Mosman, and Willoughby. The NSW EPA continues to provide financial support in recycling problem wastes and promoting the CRC.
The Northern Sydney Community Recycling Centre was opened by the Hon. Anthony Roberts, Minister for Planning and Member for Lane Cove with the President of NSROC, Mr Richard Quinn, the Mayor of Hunter’s Hill, on 12 April 2017 in a ceremony attended by the Mayors and Councillors of the five partner councils.
