Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent is encouraging residents to make the most of the free service that will be available from 9am and 3.30pm.

 “This is a chance to dispose of chemicals that we can’t accept at our Community Recycling Centre including household cleaners, solvents, garden, pool and hobby chemicals, acids, alkalis and poisons.”  

Household quantities up to a maximum of 20 litres or 20 kilograms of a single item are able to be dropped off. Business-related and commercial quantities of chemicals will not be accepted.
