Garbage Guru City of Sydney's ultimate guide to recycling and disposing of stuff.

  • Put in your Recycling Bin

    This is your bin with the yellow lid. It’s the best way to recycle paper, cardboard and most plastic containers, as well as cans and glass bottles. You don’t need to rinse your containers, but items should be EMPTY and DRY. By all means, a light rinse will help to keep your bin odour-free, just follow up with a bit of a wipe if you can.

  • Or you could ...

  • Drop off at a Chemical CleanOut

    This is a free service for the safe disposal of common household chemicals and other hazardous products. There are regular drop-off days all over Sydney. Call the NSW Environment Line on 131 555 for more info.
