City of Canada Bay is asking all community members to commit to reducing waste and increasing recycling. Together we can 'WasteLess in the Bay.'
The City of Canada Bay provides FREE WasteLess in the Bay events to residents. Visit our Eventbrite site to make a booking.
The City of Canada Bay waste contractor SUEZ offers free recycling and waste education lessons for eligible schools. Several workshops covering waste services and recycling are available free of charge to all schools within the City of Canada Bay throughout the school year.
The lessons range from 30 minutes to one hour in duration and are taught in a fun and interactive manner. Join us on a journey of discovery as we investigate the what, where and why of recycling and waste.
For more information, or to arrange a workshop, contact our Waste Education officer on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City of Canada Bay hosts the free event annually in February each year at Cintra Park car park, Canada Bay for residents of the City of Canada Bay Local Government Area (proof of residency required). The next E-waste drop-off event will be held on Saturday 16 February 2019.
You can bring:
E-waste refers to old electrical appliances either in a state of disrepair or simply obsolete. This includes everything from computers and their accessories, mobile phones, televisions, hairdryers and power tools.
It is important to divert e-waste from landfill as it generates hazardous toxins such as lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic. These toxins are released into soil and groundwater when these items are buried in a landfill. Correct disposal of e-waste is vital to achieving a sustainable future.
For local e-waste recycling options throughout the year, you can see the Officeworks Bring IT Back program.
The NSW Environment Protection Authority established the Household Chemical CleanOut service to help residents safely dispose of household chemicals.
Please note: for a similar service throughout the year, some household problem waste items can be dropped at the City of Canada Bay's Community Recycling Centre.
The City of Canada Bay hosts the Household Chemical CleanOut event annually (during October) at Cintra Park car park in Canada Bay.
