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 ...

  • Use 'em as rags

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

  • Try your hand at upcycling

    Head here for some upcycling tips or try an upcycling workshop run by Green Villages or the Green Living Centre.

  • Throw in your Garbage Bin

    Too bad this can’t be recycled or reused! Pop general waste into your bin with the red lid.
