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 ...

  • Donate to the Bower

    If you have household furniture, bikes, kitchenware, books, working appliances or small amounts of building materials that you no longer want, call The Bower on 02 9568 6280 to see if they can take your donation. They offer a free collection service for City of Sydney residents. If they can’t take your goods they’ll refer you to someone who will.

  • 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.
