  • Car batteries
  • Electronic waste
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Fluorescent light globes and tubes
  • Gas cylinders (empty)

Special Waste

There are specific costs and conditions (including three (3) business days advance notification of delivery) for disposal of special wastes, including but not limited to, asbestos, large concrete sections, bulky demolition waste, fine dusty wastes and animal wastes.

Asbestos

Council has strict conditions for the acceptance of asbestos waste at the Singleton Waste Management Facility. It is essential customers follow directions before and during disposal to avoid asbestos exposure to themselves, staff, and other people. Bookings for disposal must be made before entry via our online booking system (CRM) and will require a minimum of 24 hours notice.

How it works

Facility staff divert items destined for landfill to the recycling shop, including building items from renovations such as doors, flooring and pavers, nuts, bolts, nails and household items such as furniture, knick knacks and bicycles.

Funds raised through the recycling shop operations assist with Councils disposal of expensive recyclables and problem wastes such as chemicals and e-waste.  These services are currently offered free of charge to the community.

This Singleton Council project was supported by the NSW Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
