Kerbside large item collection service

Brisbane City Council's kerbside large item collection services will return from July 2021 to help residents dispose of large household items. The service was temporarily postponed in May 2020 due to the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Council delivers this service to all Brisbane suburbs and will:

  • carry out collections on a specific week for each suburb
  • notify you of your collection week by delivering a flyer to your property. The flyer is delivered at least one week before the collection starts in your suburb.

Coronavirus restrictions

Restrictions are in place for the Brisbane Local Government Area. Find out more.

You can also receive free reminders before your kerbside collection by:

Ensure you:

  • check what items Council will accept as part of this large item collection service
  • find out about other resource recovery options for large household items in usable condition. 

You must place your items for collection on the kerbside in front of your property by 6am on the first day of the collection period.

Note: kerbside collection is not performed on public holidays.


Residential households in the Brisbane local government area, including houses and multi-unit dwellings, are eligible to take part in the kerbside large item collection service.

Properties that are not eligible include commercial properties, schools and vacant land.

Other resource recovery options

Council encourages you to look for other resource recovery options for your large household items, to contribute to a cleaner, greener city by reducing landfill.

Council treasure troves

Council's tip shops in Acacia Ridge and Geebung sell quality secondhand items donated by residents through Council's resource recovery centres. The tip shops are operated by the Endeavour Foundation and all proceeds support people with disabilities. Donating to tip shops is free when using Council's resource recovery centres.
