New South Wales: Inner West Council
If you reside within the parameters of the Inner West Council, your disposal options will vary a little depending on the suburb in which you live. Knowing this, it is best to look up what is relevant to your suburb specifically.
The council services a free scheduled Clean Up for furniture and large household items. You can find out your area’s scheduled Clean Up day by checking the Online Waste Calendar, or downloading the Inner West Council Waste App.
If you choose to make the most of this service, you must place items such as furniture, damaged household items, bundled garden waste and bundled ropes and hoses out neatly on the kerb the night before your collection. It is importable to make sure no items are placed in a way that blocks the footpath or affects pedestrian access.
Residents in several Inner West Council suburbs can also book a free Clean Up for large household items, furniture, mattresses and whitegoods.
The Inner West council runs a Weekend Transfer Station, which is a terrific way to dispose of items such as mattresses, electronic waste, garden organics and recyclable items for free. However, you will have to pay a fee to drop off bulky waste and mixed waste.
If you need to dispose of problem waste such as gas bottles, oils, paints or batteries, you may do so for free at the council’s Community Recycling Centres.
