Penrith is a recognised leader in sustainable waste management, particularly our household organic waste recycling service. Council is committed to actively supporting our community to reduce waste sent to landfill through reducing, reusing, recycling and generally disposing of waste responsibly. We provide domestic waste collection and recycling services, sell at-cost composting equipment and promote waste avoidance and resource recovery. We also play a role through the approvals and regulation processes as regulator of building and land development activity.
You can now submit requests for all your waste needs 24/7 from any PC or mobile device so it’s convenient when you need it. The system is directly integrated with our Customer Experience team and Suez – that means your requests are actioned faster, and are easy to track for you and us.
What’s problem waste? Electronic waste, chemical waste and sharps (such as syringes, needles, epi-pens and lancets) can’t go in your household bins. Learn more about where you can dispose of these safely and Council’s chemical cleanout and e-waste drop off days.
Penrith City Council's Community Recycling Centre (CRC) opened on 20 July 2017. It provides the community with a free and convenient way to dispose of problem waste in an environmentally friendly way.
