Kerbside collection

Brisbane City Council's kerbside collection is an annual service to help you dispose of large household items. Council delivers the service to all Brisbane suburbs.

Kerbside collection postponed until further notice

Council's kerbside collection services are on hold until further notice. This decision has been made to help protect residents and Council contractors from the spread of coronavirus. Residents should safety store large items at home, or find alternative sustainable methods to dispose of their large items while kerbside collection is paused.

Alternative disposal methods include:

  • taking your large items to your local resource recovery centre. If the item is in good condition, it can be donated for free to be resold at Council's tip shops. If your item is recyclable, it can be disposed of for free in the correct bin at your nearest centre. For items that are not recyclable, you can use your waste vouchers (to be delivered to every Brisbane household in July 2020)
  • selling or giving your items away for free on local social media or selling websites.​​​​
