Waste and recycling
No time to waste
We are determined to cut the amount of rubbish the city produces by encouraging residents and businesses to produce less waste and divert more of what we throw away into re-use and recycling schemes. The City of Sydney runs special chemical and e-waste drop-off days and we can collect larger amounts of refuse after you've moved house.
How to re-use and recycle more of your refuse and cut the amount of waste the City sends to landfill.
Collection days and bins
How and when your waste is collected. You can also add a collection or change your bin.
Special collections and drop-off days
Look out for special collections, chemical and e-waste drop-off days, our fortnightly garden organics service free collections or large items, and how you can book a bigger pick-up.
What you can put into your recycling bin.
The City works hard to keep the City's streets, footpaths, and laneways clean.
