Waste and recycling

Green GC Website Thumbnail

City of Gold Coast (City) has a separate Waste and recycling website (formerly called GreenGC) for information on rubbish and recycling services on the Gold Coast.

Visit our Waste and recycling website for answers to all your questions, including:

  • Where is my closest waste and recycling centre?
  • What are the operating hours of my local tip?
  • What do I do if my bin was missed or is broken?
  • When is the next kerbside clean up in my suburb?
  • What can I put in my recycling bin?
  • What happens after recyclable material is collected?
  • What is the difference between the types of plastic?
  • Maybe you want to learn more about composting or how to make your home more sustainable?
  • How do I sign up for the green waste bin service for $1 a week?

Our City Plan Policy - Solid Waste Management supports environmental protection and public health standards by ensuring new developments include suitable waste storage and waste service facilities. The policy provides guidelines for waste bin types and dimensions and collection vehicles used for solid waste and recycling material.
