Hazardous Waste Recycling Options
Householders can drop off used motor oils at any time and at no cost at the Newton Transfer Station, Virginia Road, Newton (Ph: 8365 0025). This service is provided FREE to Campbelltown Council residents in an effort to remove waste oil from the waste stream and reduce the leachate problem associated with waste oil in landfills. Once properly collected, the oil may be refined for re-use. Please bring oil in a clean, plastic container with a lid. Avoid using paint cans or other metal containers.
For more oil recycling locations, please visit zerowaste.sa.gov.au/at-home/recycle-right.
Batteries are made from heavy metals and harmful elements such as nickel, cadmium, lead and mercury.
Householders can bring lithium and other types of hand -held batteries (excluding alkaline and car batteries) to Council Office, Campbelltown Library or Battery World (Ph: 13 17 60) for recycling. Both rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries can be recycled. Domestic quantities will be accepted at no charge. Commercial quantities will attract a fee.
Car batteries can be recycled via our scrap metal collection service.
For more battery recycling locations, please visit zerowaste.sa.gov.au/at-home/recycle-right.
Paint is only hazardous when it is wet. Dry paint is safe to dispose of in your waste bin with the paint tin lid removed. Avoid wasting paint by carefully calculating the right amount of paint to buy or giving the paint to someone who can use it. Harden excess paint by:
- Leaving the lid off the can and set it out to dry.
- Pour the paint on cardboard or newspaper in a thin layer and let it dry.
- Mix in equal parts of kitty litter, sand, saw dust or any other absorbent material and let dry.
- Purchasing a paint hardener from a local hardware or paint store.
