Waste and recycling on the Gold Coast

Information about waste and recycling services on the Gold Coast is available in one central location.

Kerbside cleanups

City of Gold Coast (City) conducted a citywide kerbside clean-up, operating in different areas of the city at different times between July 2015 and March 2016.

The kerbside clean-up was funded as part of the City Budget 2015-16.

The clean-up gave residents the chance to have unwanted rubbish* that they had been unable to dispose of through the City’s regular waste and recycling bin collections, or at one of our Waste and Recycling Centres, removed, free of charge.

*Size limits and lists of allowable / unacceptable items to be collected were provided.

All eligible residents were notified 10 days prior to the start of their collection in their area via a flyer in their letterbox.

Some areas were not included in the kerbside clean-up program. These were:

  • High rise complexes
  • Unit complexes with bulk bins (complexes with more than 10 units)
  • Some rural areas without a City provided waste collection service

The next citywide kerbside clean-up is scheduled to start in July/August 2016.

  • When will my collection happen?

    The 2016-17 clean-up is due to start in July/August 2016.

  • Why can’t you tell me the date of my collection?

    This is the first time a city-wide collection has been undertaken, so we need to be sure we allow enough time for the entire city to be serviced. There is a schedule we are working to, but these dates are subject to change.
