Hornsby Shire Council

Hornsby Shire Council Kerbside Collection

The Hornsby Shire Council provides those residing in the district with two free bulky household junk collections per year. The dates of the waste collection is scheduled by the Hornsby Shire Council and can be found by entering your home address into the council website.

It is always advised that you should seek alternative disposal methods that are more environmentally-friendly. The bulky waste that the Hornsby Shire Council picks up from your household collection will be taken directly to the rubbish tip to be disposed of. Using a landfill to dispose of your unwanted goods should only be utilised as a last resort.

This is because there are many adverse effects of a dump site including the release of a harmful gas known as methane. It is a greenhouse gas that is highly effective in trapping heat in the atmosphere, leading to global warming.

There are recycling centres in the Hornsby area which will accept your bulky recyclables and charities such as The Bower or The Salvation Army which will accept large household goods which are still in relatively good conditions.

    You guys are great, I’ll happily recommend you. I just wished I had found you sooner. I felt your price was a little too low when you quoted… so I didn’t think you would do such a good job… well done for proving me wrong.
