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.
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.
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.
