Waste and Recycling
Mosman Council continually strives to improve the waste and recycling services offered to its residents. Council offers a number of options designed to improve the service while minimising waste disposal and maximising resource recovery.
Council provides calendars to all residents detailing collection dates for each of its waste services.
Green the Block is a new initiative developed by Mosman Council to help residents living in apartments and unit blocks achieve their sustainability goals.
We have created new signage and educational material to make sure residents know exactly what is recyclable, and what should be placed in the landfill bin.
Mosman Council provides a weekly kerbside recycling collection service. Recycle your paper, cans, cartons and bottles.
Mosman Council offers residents a choice of bins for waste collection. The less waste you produce, the smaller the bin you will need and the lower the waste charge will be.
Garden organic material like leaves, twigs and weeds, grass cuttings, prunings and general garden vegetation is collected once every four weeks.
Council collects Clean Up material – such as furniture, carpet, stoves and bicycle frames – twice a year. Additional collections can be booked.
Safe and environmentally friendly ways of disposing of unwanted electronic goods like computers, televisions and video recorders.
Dumping of waste onto land or into water is illegal. In 2014 there were 600 instances of illegal dumping in Mosman which cost more than $60,000 to dispose of correctly.
Mosman Council has quality compost bins and great little worm farms for sale at subsidised prices. And, we deliver!
Mosman Council offers a number of waste education activities to schools and the local community. Read about our current projects.
