Kogarah is a suburb located in Sydney’s southeast, situated fourteen kilometres from the middle of Sydney CBD. It is the centre of the St George area, and exhibits a mixture of residential, commercial, and light industrial precincts. It has a population of approximately thirteen thousand people, with a majority originating overseas.
Kogarah City Council is committed to environmentally responsible waste collection and recycling. Some of the initiatives they have in place include:
- Domestic Waste Removal – weekly bin collection
- Fortnightly recycling waste collection
- Fortnightly green waste collection (alternated with recycling collection)
- Commercial waste collection service – including 240 litre bins for general waste, 660 litre bulk bins, and 240litre comingled recycling bins. Kogarah City Council will adapt collections to specific business requirements.
- Kerbside Cleanup – domestic residents of Kogarah receive rubbish removal kerbside services from the council twice per year. This is for the disposal of larger household goods such as furniture. The equivalent of eight full recycling bins will be accepted for each household each time. Objects which are not accepted for this service include building waste, paint and paint tins, tyres and auto parts, mirrors and window glass, and anything which can be placed into the regular recycling bin.
- The Get Sorted App is a smartphone app from SITA Australia which disperses loads of information about waste and recycling, to answer common questions such as when the next bin pick up day is; what can and can’t be placed in each bin; nearest recycling and waste disposal centres, and recycling instructions for common items.
- The Trial Household Asbestos Removal Scheme is the brainchild of the NSW Environment Protection Authority. It aims to address the problem of illegal asbestos dumping, and to minimise the financial impact on householders of disposing of asbestos properly.
- Compost Revolution – supported by Kogarah City Council, this allows residents to invest in compost bins or worm farms at half price. Up to fifty percent of household waste can be diverted into compost, which is useful for gardening and reduces the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
Additionally, there are incentives in place such as television and computer recycling drop-offs, light globe recycling, fridge buyback, toy recycling, and Mobile Muster.
