Items not accepted at Recycling and Waste Centres

⚠️ Queenslanders are urged to follow the State Government's current health directive.

Council urges residents to avoid generating unnecessary waste. Although our waste facilities remain open, social distancing and safety requirements apply, and limitations on how many people can access the site at any one time are in place.

  • Due to these restrictions, there may be considerable delays. This will result in delays of up to 60 minutes at peak times such as the weekend.
  • Please keep a distance of 1.5 metres from other visitors and staff.
  • No cash payments accepted. Payment via EFT or account only.
