What you need to do

Collection days

We'll collect your green lid bin every second week, on the same day as your yellow lid bin. This may be any time from 6am to 6pm.

Before you start

You can recycle your garden organics at home by composting or mulching.

Check out Compost Revolution to get a compost bin delivered to you. If you’d like to learn more about setting up your own compost at home, visit Sydney City Farm and sign up for a workshop.

After you finish

If you have excess garden waste

If you can’t fit everything in your bin, book a separate pick-up. Branches shouldn't be more than 1m long or 10cm thick, bundled and tied tightly. No tree stumps, logs, trunks, soil or potting mix.
This project was supported by the Environmental Trust as part of the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
