Out with the old and in with the new? If you’re looking to get rid of old stuff, make sure you only donate good quality items. Broken, damaged or worn-out goods will end up in landfill at a cost to charities.

If it’s not right for donating, Council provides residents with a bulky waste collection service twice each year. The details of the 2023 bulky waste collection are on Council’s website at council.lithgow.com/waste-recycling/waste-bulky.

Residents can dispose of permitted household bulky furniture at the Lithgow Solid Waste Facility. Furniture and other domestic waste must be from their home within the Lithgow local government area.

Residents are not charged a fee to dispose of household furniture at the Lithgow Solid Waste Facility. There is a fee for mattresses, mattress bases and ensembles to contribute to the cost of recycling. Mattresses, mattress bases and ensembles are only accepted at Lithgow Solid Waste Facility.

The Lithgow Solid Waste Facility will be closed on Christmas Day, but it is open on other public holidays in December and January.

When visiting the waste facilities, please remember to observe the sign at the entrance and to only dispose of permitted items.
