Using our waste and recycling facilities

Waste disposal fees

You can view waste disposal fees in our:

Proof of identity

Our waste and recycling facilities have different fees for residents and non-residents. This means that Logan residents must provide proof of residency, this is best done with a driver’s licence or another form of photo ID that shows your Logan address. Alternatively a copy of a rates notice (paper or digital) or any other document that shows your Logan address, supported by photo identification is also acceptable proof of residency. 

If you are a ratepayer who lives outside Logan, you will need to provide a copy of your rates notice (paper or digital), supported by photo identification.

If you live outside Logan or are unable to provide proof of residency, you are still welcome to use our waste disposal facilities but please understand you will be charged the non-Logan resident fees.

Commercial operators are not required to show identification. Commercial fees apply.

Sorting your load

We have five waste and recycling facilities. Each provide opportunities for our community to help recycle, recover and reuse waste items.

Separate recyclable, reusable and recoverable items before you start loading your vehicle.  Keeping these separate from general waste will make it safer and easier to unload when you get to the site.

If a load is not sorted, it can be difficult for our operators to see how much and what types of materials are in the load. Customers are only charged a fee for waste that they dispose. Dropping off acceptable reusable, recyclable or recoverable items is free. Doing the right thing and sorting your items before you leave home makes it easier to see what will be recycled and what is waste. This allows our operators to charge appropriately and keeps your disposal fees as low as possible. Sorting your load helps the environment and saves you some money!

Sorting your load before you visit will make it easier to pack and safer to unload. Different waste types have designated areas at the site where they need to be unloaded. Batteries, electrical appliances, e-waste, furniture, clothes, cardboard and green waste can all be recycled at our waste and recycling facilities.

When you get to the site the weighbridge attendant will direct you to follow signage to the correct areas for the types of materials you have. Recyclable, reusable and recoverable items can be dropped off in the designated areas. This will be the resource recovery area, scrap metal bay or greenwaste pad, so pack these items last for easy access.

The general waste transfer station bin should only be used for those items that can’t be reused, recycled or recovered and need disposal. 

Don’t forget to restrain and cover the load before leaving home. Pack things tightly, use boxes and bags for small items and use a tarpaulin or cargo net as well as straps to secure the load.
