Waste & recycling centres

Our 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 our list of centres for details of their location and opening hours.

Our waste management facilities experience peak demand between 10am and 2pm. To avoid delay, we recommend you visit outside these times.

To improve the safety of the community and City staff, our waste and recycling centres use surveillance equipment, including body cameras. Behaviour of an aggressive or abusive nature is not accepted at any centre.

Free tree program

The Free Tree Program begins each year in January. In 2021 residents (property owners and tenants) can collect up to 3 free trees per calendar from select waste and recycling centres on scheduled dates and times.

Body corporates, schools and community groups can continue to collect their free trees from the Coombabah Nursery.

For more information about this program, including dates, times and locations, visit our Free trees page.
