Hornsby Council’s Thornleigh Community Recycling Centre (CRC) is reopening on a restricted access basis on Tuesday, 21 September 2021

The CRC will initially be open for Hornsby Shire Local Government Area (LGA) residents only to assist with COVID safety measures and ensure residents of other LGAs are not entering Hornsby Shire LGA.

Because they have been closed for so long, they know there’s a backlog in the community. To help them manage this, Hornsby Shire residents are only permitted to visit the CRC on their normal garbage collection day, with the exception of residents whose garbage collections are on Mondays – their CRC day will be Saturdays. Please remember to sort and organise your CRC items when loading your car at home to assist easy self-unloading and to minimise the time you need to spend on site. All CRC visits are strictly drive through only – no street parking and walk-ins are permitted.

Everything you can do to help us, will help keep the CRC open.

CRC opening hours

  • Tuesday-Friday 8.30am-4pm
  • Saturday 8.30am-3pm
  • Closed Mondays

Strict COVID Safety Rules will apply and we ask residents to follow the directions of CRC staff and any traffic control operators on approaching roads.

COVID Safety Rules

  • Mandatory QR code check in
  • Stay in your car until directed
  • Wear your mask at all times
  • Maintain social distancing
  • Customers self-unload to designated bins
  • Minimise time at site

We appreciate residents understanding, patience and cooperation as we undertake this staged COVIDSafe CRC reopening.

Further advice on unrestricted access and access for residents in other LGAs will be provided over the coming weeks as public health advice is known.
