Waste exemptions and Community event bins

We offer exemptions from waste disposal charges to community organisations within Logan. This is part of our sustainable and cost-effective Waste Management Strategy.

General waste disposal exemption

Approved community organisations can receive up to $3,000 per financial year to use towards waste disposal at our facilities. 

The exemption voucher can only be used to dispose of waste that the organisation itself has generated. Disposal of personal/household waste is not permitted.

Who can apply

Groups that apply for the exemption must operate within Logan. Types of approved groups include:

  • charities and community purpose organisations
  • community based sporting groups
  • community based non-profit organisations
  • schools.
