Waste and Resource Recovery

Notice - 11 May 2017

Due to unforeseen circumstances no cash will be taken at the Raleigh Waste Management Centre.  All transactions will need to be via EFTPOS.  It is expected that this arrangement will continue for approximately 2 days.


The Bellingen Shire is the Number 1 recycler in NSW, out of 130 Council areas with 80.1% of kerbside waste diverted from landfill (NSW Environment Protection Authority NSW Local Government Waste and Resource Recovery Data Report as reported by councils 2012-13).

Recent improvements to Council’s waste facilities have included remediation works and reopening the Bowerhouse reuse shop at the Raleigh Waste Management Centre.
