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.

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. 

 

Treasure Troves and second-hand shopping

Council’s Treasure Troves (formerly known as Brisbane tips shops) are conveniently open every weekend from 8am-4pm.

Resource recovery

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.
