Since we are all spending a lot more time at home, here is a way you can help our community stay green. Sutherland Shire Council has partnered with RecycleSmart to offer a pick up on-demand service for unwanted clothing and soft plastics that can’t be disposed of in the yellow recycling bin.
For just $2 a bag, residents can book a recycling pick up service from the comfort of your own home and have items picked up from your doorstep. It’s a convenient and cost-effective way to recycle and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill for a small chunk of change.
You can even get a RecycleSmart starting kit delivered to your home for free to get you started! This includes a reusable tote bag for your recycling items.
It’s easy - simply gather and place your waste into a shopping bag or your reusable tote bag, jump online or on to the RecycleSmart app and enter your details, and when the time comes, place the bag outside your door on the selected pick up date. You can rest assured that all pick ups are contactless using gloves and masks to ensure your safety and you don’t even need to be home at the time of the pick up. The items are then taken to different recycling locations and your bag is left behind for you to reuse.
