Household clean ups in February

  • Please don’t put your unwanted items on the kerb until the night before the scheduled collection. The clean up piles can be a hazard for young children and impede pedestrian access. Wind and weather can also cause items to litter the stormwater system.

Unwanted household items are being picked up by Council this month.

Please sort items into two piles – metals and landfill – and keep these items in separate piles at the kerbside.

Items going to landfill are compacted at the kerb, so try to find better pathways for your unwanted items. For example, donate clean and good quality toys to Kimbriki, or place your items on Freecyle.

Check our A-Z of waste disposal for alternative disposal methods.

What material is collected?

Accepted Not accepted
  • Whitegoods (e.g. fridges, stoves, washing machines)
  • Bicycle frames and other metals

Doors must be removed from refrigerators and freezers.

  • Furniture and small appliances
  • Carpet and linoleum (up to 1.5m long)
  • E-waste (e.g. computers, televisions)
  • Vegetation
  • Excavated materials such as dirt
  • Commercial builders waste
  • Car parts and tyres
  • Putrescible matter such as food scraps
  • Liquid wastes such as paint, oils and chemicals
  • Bricks, concrete and guttering
  • Ceramics and tiles
  • Hazardous waste (e.g. asbestos)

Please place metals and whitegoods in a separate pile.

Metal and non-metal clean up materials are collected from the kerbside in separate vehicles to maximise the opportunity for recycling and reprocessing the metal material.


Please remember that e-waste (like televisions, computers and monitors, printers, scanners, DVD/VHS players, modems and gaming machines) is excluded from pick up.

All electronic waste can be taken to Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre any day of the week between 7am – 5pm. Up to 5 e-waste items per customer are received free of charge.

Council will host an e-waste collection in Mosman in March. Leave e-waste at the kerbside directly outside your property on your scheduled waste bin collection day during the week commencing Monday 5 March.

Chemical CleanOut

Chemicals, paints, oils, light globes, gas bottles and car batteries are not accepted during the clean ups, but you can dispose of them at the free Chemical CleanOut events.

The next opportunity is Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 March at Bicentennial Reserve car park, Small Street, Willoughby, between 9am and 3:30pm. Read more
