Recycling facilities for large quantities of materials

Council operates five waste disposal facilities which accept recycling materials. Large quantities of materials that may not fit in the recycling section of your bin can be disposed of at these facilities.

Liquid recyclable products such as oils and car batteries are not suitable for a wheelie bin or kerbside collection system as they may leak, but the facilities at the landfill and transfer stations allow residents to safely recycle cooking and engine oils as well as car batteries, again confident in the knowledge that the materials will be collected, processed and reused.

Residents are also able to leave reusable and resalable items at the recycling centres to be transferred to the Logan Recycling Market for sale to the public. These items could include:

  • clothing
  • building materials
  • homewares
  • hardware
  • furniture
  • books

Each month Logan residents recycle approximately:

  • 25 tonnes of cardboard
  • 4.5 tonnes of glass
  • 200 tonnes of metals
  • 2,500 litres of oils (car and cooking)
  • 100 tonnes of materials suitable for sale at the Logan Recycling Market

Mobile phone recycling service

Mobile phones, batteries and accessories can be recycled in the MobileMuster recycling boxes located at the following Council buildings

  • Council Administration Centre
  • Beenleigh Customer Service Centre
  • Logan North Library
  • Logan West Library
  • Jimboomba Library
  • Marsden Library
