Did you know your household batteries can be recycled?
Residents are encouraged to continue their great work recycling in Camden by taking advantage of Council’s all-in-one recycling station available at three locations across the Camden area.
The all-in-one recycling station accepts household batteries, printer cartridges and mobile phones, and can be found at the following three locations:
- Camden Council Administration Building, 70 Central Avenue, Oran Park;
- Narellan Library, corner Queen and Elyard Streets, Narellan; and
- Camden Library, 40 John Street, Camden.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, said it was important to recycle these items for the benefit of the environment.
“Taking care of the beautiful environment we live in is critical to helping future generations enjoy it as much as we do,” Cr Fedeli said.
“Recycling batteries for example not only saves natural resources but also protects the environment by keeping heavy metals out of landfill.
“Our all-in-one recycling stations are conveniently located in Oran Park, Narellan and Camden for the benefit of our residents to be able to use them.
“I urge the community to get behind this and continue to be recycle smart.”
Residents can also recycle their phones at participating Mobile Muster drop off centres in the Camden area, while also recycling their printer cartridges at all Officeworks stores and participating Australia Post, Cartridge World, Harvey Norman, The Good Guys, JB Hi-Fi, Office National and Office Products Depot outlets.
A free E-Waste service is also available to residents and small businesses in the Camden area at the Spring Farm Resource Recovery Park, 20 Barrow Road, Spring Farm.
