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 and recycling.
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.
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 issues free waste vouchers annually to Brisbane households. These vouchers can be used at any of Council's four resource recovery centres.
Treasure Troves and second-hand shopping
Council’s Treasure Troves (formerly known as Brisbane tips shops) are conveniently open every weekend from 8am-4pm.
Council has four resource recovery centres at Chandler, Ferny Grove, Nudgee and Willwong with recycling and waste facilities.
Grow, Eat, Compost and Repeat
Grow, Eat, Compost and Repeat is a series of food, gardening and composting workshops, displays and activities to celebrate International Compost Awareness Week.
Larger recycling bin
Council has waived the $30 establishment fee when you order a larger recycling bin to replace your existing 240-litre recycling bin.
