Grant for Tenterfield recycle centre project

A COMMUNITY recycling centre will be built at Tenterfield, with the local council set to receive a grant worth more than $175,000 for the project.

Lismore MP Thomas George said the funding would come from the New South Wales Government's Waste Less, Recycle More initiative.

The facility will be built at the Tenterfield Waste Transfer Station and will include a shed with undercover drive-through storage.

"This new community recycling centre will be open all year round and will provide a welcome service for 7000 residents to drop off problem waste that cannot be put in the kerbside bins including paints, oils, batteries, gas cylinders, smoke detectors and fluorescent lights for free," Mr George said.

"It will build on the existing Chemical CleanOut events that collect an average of 872,000kg of problem waste each year, by providing a permanent and convenient drop-off centre to manage these wastes for specialist disposal or recycling."
