Book a pick-up

We provide a free pick-up service for your old furniture, mattresses, whitegoods, e-waste and more.

This free service is available every week to all City of Sydney residents. Collection days depend on where you live and bookings are essential. If you live in an apartment, ask your building manager or caretaker to make a booking.

Please see below for items that we will and won’t pick-up and how to prepare your items for collection.

For items we can’t collect, please check for alternative disposal options.

If you live in an apartment building and have an onsite building manager, please refer your request for collection to your building manager.
