Kerbside cleanup

Large item collection service

Our Kerbside clean-up is a collection service that helps residents dispose of large household items. You should not place items out for Kerbside clean-up if they fit in your wheelie bin.

We deliver this service to all streets in Logan that receive a waste collection service. We will:

  • carry out collections over a specific two-week period for each suburb
  • give you advance notice of your collection date by delivering a flyer to your property.

Before you place items out for Kerbside Clean-up, please make sure you:

  • check what items we will and won’t accept as part of this large item collection service
  • check how and where to place the items on the kerbside
  • place your items out on the kerbside the weekend before your scheduled collection. Please don't place items out more than one week before your scheduled collection.
  • find out if you can reuse or recycle items you no longer want. See our A - Z of Waste and Recycling or Planet Ark’s Recycling Near You webpages.

How and where to place items

Place your items neatly on the kerb in a pile and make sure:

  • that no more than two cubic metres of waste is placed out per dwelling.  This means that the pile or any individual item is no more than 2 metres wide, 1 metre high and 1 metre deep
  • you cut green waste into 1 metre lengths and tie it into bundles (with natural string)
  • your waste does not block footpaths, driveways, letterboxes, water meters or powerpoles
  • all items can be easily loaded by two people in under five minutes.

Excessive quantities or incorrectly presented items may not be collected.

Frequently asked questions

My Kerbside Clean-up pile was missed.  What should I do?

  • Check that your kerbside clean-up was out in time (before 6:00am on the first day of your collection schedule)
  • Make sure that you did not receive a notice in your letterbox advising why your pile was not collected.  If you did you will need to remove the pile yourself.
  • Wait until after your two week scheduled collection has finished (12 days after the start)
  • Call Council on 07 3412 3412 to advise that your kerbside clean-up has been missed. Contractors will be sent within 10 business days to pick up your missed kerbside. 

Please note that you have two weeks from the end of your schedule to notify Council of the missed service. After this time contractors will not return to the area.

What if I do not follow these conditions?

We will not collect items put out for Kerbside clean-up that don’t meet the collection guidelines. You may also receive a fine for items not collected or put out before or after the Kerbside clean-up dates in your area.

What happens to the green waste that gets collected?

We collect greenwaste in a different truck. This is so the greenwaste is not contaminated. All greenwaste is chipped and sent to a facility for composting.

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. For more information about scavenging, see Illegal dumping.

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.
