A great way to dispose of items that you no longer have use for (aside from Buy Nothing, the CoSP Recycling Centre, or the City's annual Hard Waste Collection - see below) is via the “Garage Sale Trail”.

The Garage Sale Trail is one huge weekend of money-making, planet-saving, community-building fun!

Host a sale and be rid of all your unwanted clutter, or shop secondhand and see what bang you can get for your buck!

In preparation for the City’s Hard Waste Collection, we encourage residents to explore other options to reduce their footprint and keep their neighbourhoods safe and tidy.

 

Buy Nothing

 

You know what they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure! If you have items that you no longer want or need, that are still in reasonable condition, don’t throw them out on the verge to be added to landfill - offer them up on your local Buy Nothing page! 

 

Buy Nothing is a great way to give, get and connect with your neighbours. To join your local group, please visit your suburb’s page in the Engage section.

 

CoSP Recycling Centre

 

The City has a number of options when it comes to keeping things from landfill. You can dispose of the following items FOR FREE at the recycling centre, and the City will recycle them on your behalf:

 

  • e-Waste (TVs, computers etc)

  • Cardboard (clean)

  • Used motor oil

  • Scrap metal

  • Fluorescent lighting tubes / globes

  • Household and vehicle batteries

  • Styrofoam

 

The recycling centre also has a number of charity bins so that you can donate clothing in a safe and secure location.
