Tricky waste items

When it comes to waste, the most efficient and effective option is to avoid creating it altogether however the next best option is to reuse and recycle as much as possible and only throw away items as a last resort.

Together with retailers, businesses and other organisations, Inner West Council offers recycling services for certain waste items that can't go in to your household bins. These can be electronic waste items, chemicals, bulky household items, sharps and other items that are hard to recycle. Putting these items in your household bin can be dangerous and hazardous to you and others as well as the environment.
