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.

Rubbish tips and bins

Council provides rubbish removal and collection services, including general household rubbish, green waste, recycling and kerbside collections. 

Bin collection calendar

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

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.

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. 

 

Compost rebate program

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

Acceptable recycling and waste

Our resource recovery centres are located at Willawong, Chandler, Ferny Grove and Nudgee. Find out what you can take to these centres.

Brisbane bin and recycling app

Council's Brisbane Bin and Recycling app helps you stay up to date with bin collection days and learn how to recycle waste more effectively.
