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.

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.

Free native plants

This program offers a range of plants to assist you to plant and green your property. It's just another way we're helping grow our city's urban forest.

Bin and recycling app

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

Acceptable waste 

This page tells you what items you can take to our resource recovery centres and any limits that apply for specific items.


Composting is a free and simple process that you can do with or without a backyard. 

Waste vouchers

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


Brisbane tip shops

Our tip shops are open every weekend at Geebung and Acacia Ridge. They sell quality used, recycled and secondhand products salvaged from landfill.
