Brisbane City Council is committed to making Brisbane an even cleaner, greener city. To do this, we need your help to reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill by increasing recycling and recovering valuable resources.
Recycling is easier than you think and is good for the environment. Last year, Council recycled more than 91,400 tonnes from your recycling bins at home. These materials have been remade into all sorts of things, including packaging, parts of toys, bikes, cars and even trains. Although this is a great effort, we can still do better to recycle more and stop wasting valuable resources that end up in landfill.
The easiest place to start great recycling habits is in your home. Find out what you can recycle and how to recycle more, including paper and cardboard recycling tips.
There has never been a better time to have a green waste recycling bin in preparation and clean up your garden while the weather is cooler. Find out how to order your bin now.
