Waste and recycling

Council provides waste and recycling collections for your convenience. Sutherland Shire residents are entitled to two council clean-ups each financial year. These must be booked either by an eligible resident or by strata or body corporate for large complexes. This is a popular service and you should plan ahead. During peak periods, wait times can exceed eight weeks.
