Damaged bin repair or replacement

Brisbane City Council repairs damaged bins for free. Council recommends not making any temporary repairs and leave the bin in the usual pick up point.

Council is gradually replacing the dark green/grey refuse bin lids with red lids. This is in accordance with the Australian Standard for waste bins.
