Waste Disposal Fees & FAQs

Fees may apply to use Council's Waste & Recycling Facilities.

Frequently asked questions

What ID do I need to show when I go to a Waste & Recycling Facility?

Logan ratepayers and residents must show their driver’s licence to the Waste Transfer Station Operator on arrival.

If you've just moved to Logan and your new address isn't on your licence yet, you can also show other paperwork (like a utility bill or similar) showing your name and new address, in addition to your photo ID.

Those who live outside Logan are welcome to use our facilities as well.

Commercial operators are not required to show ID.

How can I pay?

We accept:

  • Cash
  • EFTPOS
  • Cheque (endorsed with contact details on reverse)
  • Debit and credit cards (Visa and Mastercard only).

Weighbridge staff cannot accept debit or credit card payments made over the phone (known as MOTO payments), either in advance or while you're on site.

Can I set up an account with the tip?

Businesses who use the Browns Plains Waste & Recycling facility regularly can complete an application to open an account.

Please be aware that it can take 6-8 weeks for your application to be approved as we are required to conduct a credit check.

Contact our Customer Service Centre on (07) 3412 3412 to start the process.

Do you sell mulch at your sites?

You may recall a time when you were able to buy mulch at our sites.

To comply with the Biosecurity Act 2014 and Biosecurity Regulation 2016, Council must take all reasonable steps to ensure we do not contribute to the spreading of fire ants. Consequently, the sale and movement of mulch (a potential fire ant carrier) from our facilities is a practice that had to cease.

Where can I dispose of caravan and camper toilet waste?

Call Loganholme Water Treatment Plant’s general enquiries number on:

(07) 3412 3412 (if calling from a mobile) or
1300 1 LOGAN (1300 156 426) – Logan City landlines only

Ask about a waste water dumping point.

Do you accept liquid waste at any of your sites?

We are not able to accept liquid waste, watery mud or sludge, or the contents of hydro excavation (vacuum) trucks. We are solid waste disposal only (apart from cooking and motor oil in small quantities).
