Resource recovery centres

Council has four resource recovery centres with waste and recycling facilities. Brisbane residents can drop off recyclables for free and any general waste and green waste for the cost of a waste voucher or a fee.

Brisbane tip shops

Council’s two tip shops are open every weekend and sell quality used, recycled and second-hand products salvaged before going to landfill.


Rochedale landfill

Council has one world-class, engineered landfill site at Rochedale, where waste from Brisbane residents is buried if it can't be recycled or reused. Waste is taken from the disposal area at each resource recovery centre to the landfill site.
