Latest updates

Consultation has concluded


We are excited to announce that we are delivering the first stage of the Reimagining Kelso Masterplan, which was officially endorsed by Council in 2022 and received very positive feedback from our community. The first stage of the Masterplan is the construction of the Community Recycling Centre (CRC), which will be the only facility of its kind in the area. This CRC will allow all residents to drop off problem waste free of charge, which often cannot be disposed of, in their red and yellow bins or bulky waste clean ups.

Council sees great value in recycling and the circular economy. This project is also a part of the Clean and Green Strategic initiative and will help to contribute to a cleaner environment for the future of our City.

This proposal

The CRC will accept a range of materials that can be hard to dispose of, including paints, car and household batteries, motor and other oils, gas bottles (LPG and other types), fire extinguishers, fluorescent light globes and smoke detectors and more. For more information, see below.

The primary aim of the Kelso CRC is to make it easier for residents to safely dispose of materials that can be hazardous to the environment and to public health. The CRC will then store these materials safely until they are collected by the NSW Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) contractors.

The design of the CRC will be innovative, creative and will focus on efficient processes. It will be flexible, adaptable and allow for future growth. There is a strong emphasis on sustainability and the building design will utilise a number of recycled materials available on site.

View the draft images and floorplan of the CRC and let us know what you think of the project below.
