Kerbside cleanup

Each year we hold a kerbside clean up to help residents dispose of large household items and green waste.

Please leave your unwanted items on the kerb the weekend before the collection is due to start in your area. Please make sure everything is ready to go before 6.00am on the first day of collection.

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 remove items from your house. Ask family, friends or neighbours to give you a hand. There are community groups who may pick up items in good condition that they can sell or re-use. Some examples are:

There are also companies such as skip bin contractors who can take away rubbish. Fees apply for these services.

I accidentally threw something out, can I get it back?

We cannot return any items we collect. The items get crushed in the collection vehicle straight away.

Can I put my garden clippings in plastic bags?

No, All green waste should be placed in cardboard boxes. Our contractors cannot process the waste correctly if it is placed in a plastic bag.  

What can you 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 our control. We have no way of policing people who scavenge.

If scavengers or vandals have gone through your pile, we would appreciate it if you tidied it up.

Will any of the items I put out be recycled?

No, we do not recycle the items we collect at kerbside clean up. If you have any unwanted household items that are still in good condition, you may be able to donate them to the Logan Recycling Market.

I work in a commercial property (e.g. warehouse or shop). Can we put waste out?

No, kerbside clean up is available to residential properties only. For disposal charges please see our Waste fee schedule (PDF 4.7 MB) brochure.
