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.
Council has four resource recovery centres at Chandler, Ferny Grove, Nudgee and Willwong with recycling and waste facilities.
Council issues free waste vouchers annually to Brisbane households. These vouchers can be used at any of Council's four resource recovery centres.
