Household clean-ups

Getting rid of the big stuff

Use Council's clean-up service to dispose of bulky items that don't fit in your regular rubbish bin.

Randwick City Council provides residents with 4 FREE household clean-up collections each year. This includes:

  • 2 scheduled  clean-up collections
  • 2 booked clean-up collections.

Scheduled clean-up collections are based on your residential zone. If you're not sure which zone you're in, please use the waste zone map. Scheduled clean-up collection dates are also listed in your waste collection calendar.

Booked clean-up collections can be booked using the Book a clean-up form at a date and time that is convenient to you, subject to booking availability. You can also contact Council's Call Centre on 1300 722 542 during business hours.

Special paid pick-ups can also be arranged if you require more than 4 collections per year, or have a large volume of items. Special paid pick-ups can be arranged by contacting Council's Call Centre on 1300 722 542 during business hours.

You can also take items to our contractor's facility at SUEZ Lucas Heights Waste Management and Recycling Centre (charges may apply).

Waste left on the street outside of your collection times (or on public land at any time) is deemed illegal dumping and may lead to a heavy fine.

Preparing for your household clean-up

To help ensure your household clean-up collection runs smoothly and to enable our drivers to remove your items safely, it's important to:

  • Put items on the kerb the day before the assigned collection day. Waste left on the street outside of your collection times (or on public land at any time) is deemed illegal dumping and may lead to a heavy fine.
  • Separate stacks into metal and non-metal
  • Ensure you don't exceed the maximum volume of one cubic metre
  • Stack items neatly and safely
  • Put small items into bags or boxes
  • Note that only empty paint tins will be collected
  • Remove doors from refrigerators and all other appliances.

Does Council collect natural Christmas trees?

We provide residents a free annual, natural Christmas tree collection. Please place your natural (as opposed to artificial) Christmas trees at the front of your house near your waste bins 24 hours before the scheduled day (check your waste calendar for pick-up dates)

Natural Christmas trees will be collected with your green waste on your date of collection. Dates are listed based on zones. If you're not sure what zone you're in, visit our waste zone map to find out.
