The Mosman Council provides 4 kerbside collection annually. Two of which are scheduled dates for the council free rubbish pick up whereas the other two collections are pre-paid. Pre-paid council junk removal provides residents with excessive waste the flexibility to arrange a collection date that is convenient for them.
There is a 2-day notice prior to the collection date for all prepaid services. The fees involved for Mosman Council prepaid collection are as shown.
The nearest recycling centre for those in the Mosman Council district is located at Artarmon where the public drop-off is available to the public. This option is comparable for residents with an excessive amount of household rubbish that they need to get rid of. Although there is a fee to use the recycling facility, you will be pleased to know that your waste will be properly recycled for the benefit of the environment.
Household items that are accepted by Mosman Council
For both scheduled and booked council pick up, there are conditions and types of items that the Mosman Council will accept. Household items which do not fall under these categories are not collected and will need to be disposed of in a different manner. The Mosman Council will collect:
- White goods e.g. refrigerator, stove, washing machine, dryer, microwave
- Certain metals e.g. bicycle frame, metal appliances
- Furniture e.g. chair, table, cabinet, drawers, lounge, mattress
- Flooring e.g. carpet, linoleum
Household items that are not accepted by Mosman Council
For household items that the Mosman Council does not accept, it is best to seek an alternative removal option such as a rubbish removal service or a recycling centre which accepts it. They include:
- E-waste (computers, televisions)
- Building material (sand, brick, concrete, rubble, tiles, ceramic)
- Car parts and tyres
- General household waste (food scrap, rubbish that will fit your wheelie bin)
- Hazardous waste (household chemical, oil, paint, asbestos)
- Items over 30kg
- Items longer than 1.5 metres
Although the Mosman Council does not accept electronic waste (e-waste) as part of their kerbside junk collection, they often hold drop-off events where they accept e-waste to prevent the illegal dumping of e-waste. Many e-waste contains hazardous chemicals such as mercury and lead that can majorly impact wildlife and the ecosystem.

Before using the free junk removal from the Mosman Council or prepaid services, ensure that your items fall under one of the categories of the items accepted by the council.
1) You must place the items out the night before collection day
2) Doors from white goods such as the fridge must be removed
3) Ensure that items are under 30kg and shorter than 1.5 metres
4) The items are less than 3 cubic metre in volume (a fee will incur if it exceeds)
5) The neatly stacked pile of junk should not obstruct any vehicle or pedestrian path
