We’re creating a clean and green Brisbane for you and your family to enjoy for years to come.

Use this page to find out more about rubbish, resource recovery centres and bins, Brisbane's natural environment and how to make your home and community a cleaner and greener place.

Help make a clean and green Brisbane

Check out our popular clean and green web content and find out how we can all play our part to make sure our homes, backyards and, of course, Brisbane stay clean, green and beautiful.

Green waste recycling service

Green waste recycling bins are an easy, affordable way to dispose of green waste. Be prepared for storm season by using your green bin for lawn clippings, prunings and leaves.

Compost rebate program

The program provides eligible Brisbane residents a rebate of up to $70 off their purchase of eligible composting equipment.

Bin collection calendar

Use our bin collection calendar to find the collection day for your address - for general household rubbish, recycling and green waste.

Resource recovery

Council has four resource recovery centres at Chandler, Ferny Grove, Nudgee and Willwong with recycling and waste facilities.

Waste vouchers

Council issues free waste vouchers annually to Brisbane households. These vouchers can be used at any of Council's four resource recovery centres. 

 

Reduce your household carbon footprint

Use the Brisbane Carbon Challenge calculator to estimate your household's carbon footprint and receive tips on how to reduce it and save money at the same time.

Hanlon Park - Stones Corner

Hanlon Park in the heart of Stones Corner is being revitalised by removing the concrete drain and returning Norman Creek to a natural waterway through the park.

Foreshore dog off-leash areas

After a 12-month trial period, areas at Sandgate and Manly will continue as foreshore dog off-leash areas.
