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.
Reverse Garbage takes all sorts of materials for reuse. Call to check your donation will be accepted on 02 9569 3132 or email any questions. It’s open for donations Monday to Saturday 9am-4pm (no Sundays).
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.
