Inner West Council

Waste and Recycling Alternatives

Not all items are suitable for Council's bin service and clean up collections and many items may be recycled or reused. The following pages contain useful information on waste disposal and recycling options as well as tips on how you can reduce your waste. We can all play our part in protecting our environment by disposing of unwanted items responsibly.
