Household Paint & Chemical Drop-Off Days

Logan residents can bring up to 10 litres of some chemicals to our sites for disposal free of charge. The service is available from 8:00am to 4:00pm at:

  • Browns Plains Waste & Recycling Facility - 4 November 2017
  • Carbrook and Logan Village -  3 February 2018
  • Greenbank and Beenleigh - 5 May 2018

These materials include solvent and water based paints, pesticides, arsenic based materials, photographic solutions, pharmaceuticals, acids, alkalis, solvents, pool chlorine and petrol. Materials that do not fall into the pre-mentioned categories will not be accepted.

Please note that Council will be retaining all the containers that paint and chemicals are presented in.

Materials such as fluorescent tubes, cooking oil, vehicle batteries, domestic smoke detectors, rechargeable batteries, mobile phones and accessories, sharps (used syringes - residents only) and tyres are accepted at the landfill 365 days per year. There is no charge for disposal of these materials with the exception of motor oil ($0.30 per litre for every litre in excess of 25 litres) and tyres (ranging from $4.00 for car tyres).

Paint, which has been allowed to harden, is accepted 365 days per year and is subject to general waste disposal fees.
