Waste & recycling centres

Jacob's Well temporary closure Friday 28 January 2022

Jacobs Well Waste and Recycling Centre (WRC) is temporarily closed to the public. It is due to reopen at 7am Saturday 29 January.

Customers are asked to redirect their waste and recycling to Staplyton or Helensvale WRC and green organics to Pimpama Green Organics Drop and Go. We thank you for your patience during this time.

Public holidays: 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 2022, residents (property owners and tenants) will be able to collect up to 3 free trees, per calendar year, from Reedy Creek Waste and Recycling Centre and other locations on scheduled dates and times between January and May.

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