Donating to tip shops
Residents can donate quality, reusable household items via Council’s resource recovery centres. Tip shop donations from vehicles under 4.5 tonnes Combined Gross Vehicle Mass (CGVM) do not attract a disposal fee.
Make your donation count by ensuring it is clean and working. Onsite staff may refuse items that are not considered saleable.
We want to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill in Brisbane by reusing and recovering valuable resources. Think of all the natural resources used to create everyday items that we use around the home, and all the energy and effort that has gone into making these things.
Instead of wasting these resources in landfill once we have finished using them, we can rethink our rubbish and choose to reuse, upcycle and recycle. Find out more.
Garage Sale Trail 2017
Council is sponsoring the Garage Sale Trail which will be held on the weekend of 21 and 22 October 2017. This event links garage sales across Australia and supports reuse, fundraising and fostering local connections. It’s a great chance to declutter your home, shop the trail for treasure and help Brisbane keep more good stuff out of landfill.
Anyone can host a sale including local businesses, schools, community groups and creators with something to sell.
