In 2015, Council won an award for the Innovative Council Award for this app at the Australasian Waste & Recycling Expo.

More information

Residents without access to a smartphone or tablet can continue to access Council's bin collection calendar and refer to Brisbane’s Best Recycling Guide for Households. The guide includes recycling tips, lists of items with images and explains how each can be recycled in Brisbane.

Council developed the app to help make recycling decisions quick and simple. This is part of Council’s plan to work together for a clean and green city, with reduced waste to landfill.
