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

  • Donate to a charity

    Charities will accept items in good condition you don’t want or need anymore. Put them in your local Collection Bin or give them over the counter. Some charities offer a pick-up service – visit Smith Family, Salvos, Vinnies for more info.

  • Or you could ...

  • Get Bag of Rags to help

    Part of Mission Australia, Bag of Rags cuts down unusable clothing and textiles into cleaning rags for industry. Call 02 4286 6100 for more info.

  • Post on Freecycle

    Give away your stuff for free on Freecycle.

  • Try your hand at upcycling

  • Use 'em as rags

    Cut them to the size you want and wipe, mop and polish to your heart’s content.
