Recycling Station

Printer cartridges can now be recycled in a newly developed all-in-one recycling station available at three locations across the Camden area.

The new stations, which allow the community to recycle printer cartridges, household batteries and mobile phones, 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 the new stations offered residents a fantastic way to recycle hazardous waste in a safe way.

“Recycling and keeping waste out of landfill is crucial to the future health of our planet so Council is hoping to help residents do the right thing and recycle properly,” Cr Fedeli said.

“Many family homes would have a range of old mobile phones, batteries or printer cartridges lying around and the last thing we want is for them to be going in their general waste bins.

“While Council does host an annual Household Chemical CleanOut event once a year, I also encourage residents to use the new stations to recycle in the safest possible way.”

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 LGA at the Spring Farm Resource Recovery Park located at 20 Barrow Road, Spring Farm.
