Brisbane bin and recycling app

Brisbane City 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. 

Council developed the app to help make recycling decisions quick and simple. This is part of Council’s plan to work together for a clean and green city, with reduced waste to landfill. 

The app is available to download onto iOS and Android devices.


App features include:

  • a bin collection calendar for Brisbane residents, with a notification option to remind you when your bins will be collected
  • an alphabetical list of materials with information on how to recycle or dispose of them
  • general information about bin collections
  • general information about Council’s waste facilities, with map and directions
  • recycling tips and myths
  • push notifications about your next kerbside collection service and free tipping days in your area.
