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

  • Put it on Gumtree

    For anything you no longer want, use or need, put it up for sale or give it away on Gumtree.

  • Or you could ...

  • Post on Freecycle

    Give away your stuff for free on Freecycle.

  • Call a scrap metal dealer

    Find your closest scrap metal dealer here.

  • 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.

Did you know?

If you have a large amount of these bottles see if a scrap metal dealer can help. If you are putting in your recycling bin, remove the plastic lid and put it in your recycling bin separately.
