Kerbside Clean Up

Council's Kerbside Clean Up is an annual service provided to help its residents dispose of large household items and green waste.

Collections commence at 6am on a Monday and run for two weeks for each suburb group. Click here for the latest schedule.

Click here for Frequently Asked Questions about the service.

You should receive a flyer by addressed post 1-2 weeks prior to your scheduled collection, reminding you to put your items out. Leave unwanted materials neatly on the kerbside.

What can be placed out:

Green waste

  • Tree and shrub prunings and palm fronds cut into 1 metre lengths and tied into bundles
  • Leaves and grass clippings – in cardboard boxes

Hard waste

  • Furniture
  • Wood products (no longer than 1 metre in length)
  • Carpet and linoleum (lino)
  • Stoves, dishwashers and washing machines – remove doors
  • Small amounts of building materials like rocks, tiles – but not loose dirt

What can’t be placed out:

  • Tyres, batteries, gas cylinders, fire extinguishers
  • Car or motorbike bodies and parts
  • All fibro type material like cement sheeting, gyprock, plasterboard (as it is not possible to determine if it contains asbestos)
  • Hazardous or medical waste, chemicals, oils
  • Food or any waste that may rot and attract flies and vermin
  • Refrigerators, air conditioners and freezers (due to the presence of ozone depleting gasses)
  • Glass or items that contain glass – televisions, mirrors, computer monitors, etc.

Where should the items be placed?

On the footpath in a neat pile. Your waste should not obstruct pedestrian traffic and should not be placed on top of water meters or directly in front of letterboxes or other people’s driveways.

How much rubbish can I put out?

Piles of hard waste items should be no larger than 2 metres wide, 1 metre high and 1metre deep.

Green waste must be cut into 1 metre lengths and tied into bundles.

As a guide, two people should be able to load your waste in no more than 5 minutes.

Excessive waste loads may not be collected.

Frequently asked questions

I have trouble using the service due to age/disability. What can I do?

Unfortunately our crews are not able to help either move waste to the kerb or remove waste from your house.

Ask family, friends or neighbours to give you a hand.

There are community groups who may assist with the collection of items in good condition that they can re-sell or re-use. Some examples are:

There are private companies, like skip bin contractors, listed in the Yellow Pages and on Google, which can assist with taking away hard rubbish items and garden waste. Fees will apply.

Can I put my old TV out?

We ask people not to put their old TV sets out for collection, because they can become a hazard if vandalised (broken glass left on the footpath). We accept TVs and some other electrical items free of charge for recycling at all Waste and Recycling Facilities. See the e-waste section of our Recycling page.

Can I put an old mattress out, even a king size one?

Yes, provided it is not too heavy for the two-person collection crew to lift.

Can I put old tins of paint out?

Yes, if the paint has been allowed to harden completely. Please leave the lids off the tins so the collection crew can see the contents. No other chemiclas can be accepted.

I know my fibro doesn’t contain asbestos, because it isn’t that old. Can I put it out for collection?

Do not place any sheet-like building material out for collection. As they are unable to be completely sure, the collection crew treats all such material as if it does contain asbestos. It will not be collected.

My green waste wasn’t collected because it wasn’t tied and bundled, but other green waste piles were collected, and they weren’t tied or bundled either.

Due to the large amounts of green waste put out during kerbside collection, the crews will collect smaller piles of untied or unbundled green waste, provided it’s in a neat pile. If your pile is of an unmanageable size, a leaflet will be left in your letterbox instructing you to correct the load and contact Council to arrange collection.

What can Council do about people who go through kerbside rubbish piles and take items to keep, resell or strip?

This does happen, and unfortunately it’s out of Council’s control. We are not able to conduct vehicle registration searches and therefore have no way of policing people who scavenge.

If your load has been disturbed by scavengers or vandals, we ask that you please tidy up again to ensure the load is collected.

Will any of the items I put out be recycled?

No. All items are compacted immediately in the collection vehicle and disposed of at the Browns Plains Waste & Recycling Facility. (To separately collect items for resale/recycling would add significantly to the cost of the service.)  If you have any unwanted household items you think are still in good condition and can be resold, you may be able to donate them to the Logan Recycling Market.

I work in a commercial property e.g. warehouse, shop, etc. Can we put waste out?

Kerbside Clean Up is a service provided to residential properties only. See our Fees page for ways to dispose of certain materials produced as part of day to day business.
