Waste and recycling
Waste collection services on public holidays
Waste collection services operate as usual on public holidays. Please ensure bins are placed kerbside the night before collection day.
Waste and recycling centres
Our residential waste and recycling centres are open every day except for Christmas Day and Good Friday. Reedy Creek Commercial Landfill is closed on all public holidays. Please check your centre's page for details of opening hours.
Find your nearest waste and recycling centre, including details about opening hours and the types of waste and recyclables accepted at each centre, using our interactive map. Grab a bargain at a recycle shop.
The City provides residential collection services on a weekly basis for general waste and fortnightly for recycled waste.
We also offer an optional green waste bin collection (serviced on alternate fortnights to the recycling bins), an extensive range of commercial waste management services, and a city-wide kerbside clean up for residents.
