Good Neighbour Clean-up Scheme

The Good Neighbour Clean-up Scheme is a Brisbane City Council initiative that provides a voluntary refuse transport service for residents who are over 60 years of age or are mobility impaired.

Volunteers collect the applicant's general waste items which are too large for the general refuse bin, and transport the waste free of charge to a Council resource recovery centre.


To be eligible, applicants must:

  • live in the Brisbane City Council area
  • be over 60 years of age or mobility impaired and
  • have no able bodied person living at the address and have no access to alternative support in the home.

Unacceptable items

 Volunteers will not collect:

  • domestic waste
  • waste which exceeds a mass weight of 20kg
  • green waste
  • hazardous waste
  • building materials
  • glass and mirrors
  • analogue televisions.


If you would like to make a collection request or register to become a Good Neighbour Clean-up Scheme volunteer, phone Council on 07 3403 8888.
