Recycle It Saturday makes it easy for Sydney, Woollahra and Waverly Council residents to recycle tricky household items. Drive and drop off clothes in great condition, old electronics, small metal items, bicycles, polystyrene, x-ray scans and more. Quarterly, free.

Recycle It Saturday is a partnership between City of Sydney, Waverley Council and Woollahra Municipal Council. The council  can only accept items from residents who live in these local council areas. Bring identification with proof of your address. You may be asked for this before we can accept your items.

Prepare and separate your items using old cardboard boxes

Before you arrive, group items into different boxes or bags. We recommend reusing old cardboard boxes, which you can leave with us for recycling. Pack these in your boot, backseat or trailer so we can easily remove them.

If you’re a building manager or have a lot of items

Contact us to discuss quantities for drop-off

Visit the depot and stay in your vehicle

This is a drive-through event. Stay in your seat. The team will unpack your vehicle for you and get you on your way faster.

If you’re walking or riding a bike, you can access a separate drop-off area at the end of the driveway.

Be mindful of what’s in your boot, backseat or trailer

To ensure you don’t drop off anything by accident, be specific when telling our team which bags or boxes they should take from your boot, backseat or trailer. Or better yet, ensure your vehicle is only packed with items you’ve brought to drop off.

When: Saturday 24 February 2024 from 9am to 3pm

Where:  Alexandra Canal Depot, 67C Bourke Road, Alexandria.
