Cat on a binInner West Council provides a comprehensive waste and recycling service to our residents. By working together to avoid, reuse and recycle we can cut down on the amount of garbage sent to landfill and ensure a sustainable future for our community.

Each resident recycles about 103kg of materials in their recycling bin every year. The recyclables are reprocessed and made into new products.

On the flip side, each resident also generates nearly twice as much garbage (199kg) each year. The contents of the garbage bins are sent to landfill, and include materials that could be recycled or composted (e.g. food organic waste).

Do the right thing and sort your waste correctly, bring your bins in, and take advantage of Council's full suite of services for a clean, safe environment.
