Resource recovery centres
Brisbane City Council has four resource recovery centres at Chandler, Ferny Grove, Nudgee and Willawong with recycling and waste facilities. The centres were previously known as transfer stations or tips.
Recyclables can be dropped off for free, and you can use waste vouchers or pay a fee for the disposal of general waste and green waste.
Our resource recovery centres help you to recycle more, reducing waste to landfill.

The centres are open every day of the year, including Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year's Day, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

As you enter a resource recovery centre, you will be asked what types of materials you have for recycling or disposal. The attendant will direct you to follow the colour-coded line displayed on the road.
For recyclable items and or Treasure Trove donations in your load, go to the free recycling area first and place your materials into the relevant container. Friendly staff in the area will assist you with sorting if you are unsure where to recycle. Follow the green and general waste instructions if you have any remaining waste in your load.
