Waste and recycling
Everything is useful
Our official target set by the State Government was 66% resource recovery by 2014. Resource recovery is just a fancy term for making sure that stuff that can be used for something else, doesn’t end up in landfill. Thanks to you, we reached it well before time.
What next? Let’s reach for the sky. With your help, we're heading closer to zero waste.
Recycle your empty drink containers when you're out and about for a chance to win fab prizes. Find our machines at Wynyard Park, Redfern village, Circular Quay and Haymarket.
Drop off your struggling laptop, clunky mobile phone and 'that Desktop that keeps crashing' at our e-waste event on Saturday 1 August at our depot in Ultimo.
No, it’s not the beat-up dryer that’s free, but the pick-up. That’s right. We will come to you and pick up your unwanted whitegoods and furniture from the kerb. For free. All you have to do is book it in first!
