Problem Waste

Problem waste such as batteries, light globes, chemicals and e-waste, can’t be placed in your kerbside recycling bins and shouldn't be placed in your kerbside garbage bin.

Waverley Council provides a range of options for residents to responsibly dispose of priority problem wastes for free.
