Book a pick-up

We provide a free pick-up service for your old furniture, mattresses, whitegoods, electronics and more. We’ll pick-up your real or plastic Christmas tree too – make sure you book it under bulky household items and furniture.

This free service is available every week to all City of Sydney residents. Collection days depend on where you live and bookings are essential.

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 your item has a battery, plug or power cord, book it under the metals, whitegoods and e-waste category.

Items can be collected anytime from 6am to 6pm. If your items are not collected after 6pm, you can report a missed collection.

If you live in an apartment, ask your building manager or caretaker to make a booking.
