Recycling Tricky Items Is Now Free And Easy In Mosman

We first reported on them back in October 2020, and now, with thanks to Sydney start-up RecyleSmart, Mosman residents can now recycle soft plastics, clothes, e-waste, batteries, aluminium coffee capsules and other problem waste through a home pick-up service. And even more exciting… you can now subscribe for a monthly collection for free!

Did you know that over 20% of red bin waste could be recycled? RecycleSmart is an innovative waste management company that aims to address these worrying statistics with tech solutions that increase recycling rates and reduce the amount of recyclable materials ending up in landfill.

This service has been available in Mosman for over 1 year and together, the amazing Mosman community has diverted over 4,000 kilos of waste from landfill!

So How Does It Work?

1. Collect the items you want to recycle and pack them into any standard size shopping bag (RecycleSmart also has their own bag you can purchase on their website). For a full list of what RecycleSmart accepts visit
2. Then use the RecycleSmart website or app to order your Power Pickup. Leave your bags outside your nominated address. Up to 5 bags can be collected at one time.
3. The RecycleSmart team will then collect your goods and ensure they are recycled correctly.

You can subscribe for free and get up to 2 bags collected every month or simply book a single Power Pickup for $2 a bag.

If you want to try out the service first, use the code MOSMANLIVING for a free Power Pickup!

It’s designed to make recycling your tough stuff as easy as ordering an Uber. Their app is also the perfect tool for people wanting to know more about “what goes where”, simply download it and you will always know in which bin a specific item should go.
