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.

  • 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.

  • Book a free collection

    You can have whitegoods, large household items and some garden organics collected for free. Here’s what we can and can’t collect. Bookings are essential – book online or call 02 9265 9333. Collection days depend on where you live and will be confirmed when the booking is made.

  • Throw in your Garbage Bin

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