A clean home is good for your health and wellbeing, but it can be difficult to get started when you have loads of bulky rubbish to tackle. It doesn’t need to be a daunting task, but bulk rubbish removal in Sydney can be expensive. There are plenty of ways you can ditch the waste and avoid breaking the bank at the same time. 

Repurpose Or Donate 

Before you dispose of anything, you should ask whether the item can be reused, by yourself or someone else. You may be able to repurpose the old dresser in the spare room. A fresh paint job could breathe new life into it. Or it could move to the garage to be used as a tool storage unit. If not for you, could someone else use the item? If it’s in working order and a usable condition, donating it to charity is a better option than ditching it at the dump. Goodwill and Habitat for Humanity will come to your home to collect your donations. They do have strict guidelines for what they can take. So, don’t be surprised if they refuse to take certain items once they see them. 

You can skip donating and earn a little money for yourself. Use Gumtree, Facebook or eBay to sell your old stuff. It will take you time to list it all and effort to facilitate sales, but it’s a great way to earn some cash. 

Visit the Dump 

If you have a vehicle or access to one, you can fill it to the brim and take it to the dump yourself. This is the cheapest way to ditch your bulky rubbish. However, it’s unlikely a standard vehicle would have the space required to haul your bulky rubbish in one trip. There are loads of dumps to choose from in the Sydney area, and all will charge for the items you are dropping off including for household, commercial or trade waste. Your best to check their pricing as well as their list of accepted and not accepted waste, as you don’t want to make a trip and be disappointed when they turn you away.

Council Collections 

Contact your local council if you need bulk collection services. They offer kerbside pickup for a variety of items. You will need to separate it into the correct category and have it on the kerb the night before your scheduled collection. There are limits to what the council will collect, and there may be a cap on how often they do this. Be sure to check the rules around council collections. 


If you are having work done and you’re worried about bulky rubbish being left behind, speak to the tradies before they get started. In fact, you should speak to them before you sign a contract. Make sure that they remove all of the waste that comes as a result of the work being carried out. You’re paying professionals to complete trade work; that cost should include waste disposal. Be clear about that upfront and make sure you get it in writing. 

Break It Down 

Before you enlist the professionals, do your best to break down your bulk waste as much as possible. The majority of companies charge by cubic metre so, the more you can break it down, the cheaper it will be. If you’re not sure what you should break down or not, your best bet is to try. Old wardrobes and dressers can be dismantled. The aim is to ensure it takes up as little space in a van as possible. 

The benefit of using a professional removal company versus a skip hire is you are paying for precisely what is uplifted, there’s no waiting around, and you don’t have to load it either. Once the team arrive, they can handle it.

With a skip bin, you may require a permit depending on where it sits. That’s not to mention the amount of physical labour you have to expend to fill it. So, if letting professionals handle it is cheaper, why wouldn’t you? Not to mention the fact that a rubbish removal company can remove a wide range of items, from white goods to garden waste.
