Kerbside pickup zones - maps

Unfortunately we have had to remove the skip bins as we have found that we are getting flammable items and asbestos being placed in the bins. 

No flammable, chemical or asbestos containing materials to be placed kerbside.  Items such as paints and oils can be dropped at the Byron Resource Recovery Centre located  at 115 Manse Rd, Myocum. 

Due to weather and heavy traffic, waiting times at the BRRC may be longer than usual and we thank residents for their patience and understanding during this period.

Small amounts of asbestos can be disposed of at the Lismore and Tweed Recovery Centres – please contact the centres for information on how to remove asbestos. Large amounts of asbestos, over 10 square metres, will require a licensed removalist.

If you are not in the above areas but need assistance re waste, please call Council Resource Recovery staff on 6626 7081, during work hours.
