Reducing waste is important for our community, but it can be confusing. Use these tips to create less waste and recycle more when you're at home and out and about.
Many items that go into your general waste bin can be recycled. If you’re unsure of what can be recycled, check out Recyclepedia, our online A-Z of recycling on the Gold Coast.
Recycle Street at our waste and recycling centres is another great way to ensure your unwanted items are recycled as much as possible. You can also dispose of waste such as paint, motor oil, car batteries and hazardous chemicals.
Use your green organics bin for garden prunings and lawn clippings. If you don't have a green organics bin or have large amounts of green organics, you can drop them off at a Green Organics Drop and Go.
Use our Bin Day Finder for a reminder on what you can put in your bin and when they’ll be collected.
