City of Ryde Waste Drop-Off Stations

The City of Ryde has installed new Problem Waste Drop-Off Stations at the entry of the Blue Level Car Park at Macquarie Centre on Level 1.

Problem Waste Drop-off Stations are for City of Ryde residents to safely dispose of household problem waste items that are not allowed in your kerbside red, yellow or green lid bins. 

Problem waste items in kerbside bins contributes to contamination of landfill sites and may cause fires or create other harmful effects to human health and the environment. 

Items that can be disposed of in Problem Waste Drop-Off Stations include:

  • Household batteries
  • Mobile phones and accessories
  • Ink cartridges
  • Fluoro Light bulbs and globes.


Please note that no regular household rubbish, particularly coffee cups, are accepted at the Problem Waste Drop-Off Stations. Coffee Cups can be recycled separately in our 'Charopy' Smart Bins.

Commercial quantities are not permitted. Larger problem waste items (such as car batteries, paint tins, TVs, computers and gas bottles) can be taken to CRC Artarmon (8 Waltham Street, Artarmon) to be disposed of for free.  Click here for more information and for the opening hours. 

To find out what you can dispose of and the locations of the stations, visit the Problem Waste Drop-Off Stations webpage.
