    Storing and transporting your problem waste

    Please handle and transport your materials carefully and safely. Protect your vehicle by placing items on a protective sheet or tray in the boot to capture any leakages or breakages.

    The CRC facilitates the reprocessing and reuse of these materials and prevents them from entering landfill. By sorting your waste and taking it to your local CRC, you will:

    • Help improve recycling rates;
    • Save water, energy and other valuable natural resources; and
    • Protect the environment.

    For more information please call Penrith City Council on 4732 7777.

    This is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy. Visit www.epa.nsw.gov.au
