The Blacktown City Council provides residents with up to 12 free kerbside household clean-up services each year. You must organise a date for collection as soon as possible as there is a high demand for the free pick up service. An approximate waiting period of up to 4 weeks before your household junk will be picked up.
It is highly encouraged that residents seek more environmentally-friendly disposal methods that recycle and reuses the waste. The Blacktown City Council collect household rubbish and dumps them in a landfill. A landfill should only be used as a last resort of rubbish disposal due to the harmful greenhouse gases that are released into the atmosphere.
The Blacktown Community Recycling Centre accepts a wide range of household products that the council does not take. The facility can recycle your waste and transform them into new products which those in need can use.
Donating your household items is a fantastic way to reuse products that are still in good conditions. Don’t waste your things by throwing them in a landfill, give them to someone who needs it. Some charities will accept your goods such as The Salvation Army or St Vincent de Paul Society.
