In exciting news, Council has partnered with a new doorstep recycling service provider called HomeCycle. From Friday 1 March 2024, HomeCycle will replace the service Council provided through RecycleSmart.

Just like our previous service, HomeCycle offers a free and easy way for Lane Cove residents to recycle and repurpose items that don’t belong in household bins. With HomeCycle, you can easily book a free collection of unlimited bags containing tricky-to-recycle items once every month, subject to availability.

By booking in for the minimum of three bags per collection you’ll be helping to streamline our collection process and contribute further to our environmental sustainability efforts. More bags per collection means reduced transportation and a lower overall carbon footprint.

Book your collection 

Thank you for your cooperation as we transition to this new and improved recycling service following our initial trial with RecycleSmart. Together, we will continue to make a positive impact on our environment.
