Recycling and Waste Centres opening hours and locations

⚠️ 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.

Birkdale Recycling and Waste Centre will re-open on Monday 17 August 2020.

Here are some of the changes that have been made:

  • New traffic management at top and bottom of hill. The top of the hill will be a one-way system to help manage traffic flow;
  • The area at the top of the hill has a new asphalt seal where the green waste, timber, scrap metal and other recyclable material drop off location areas are;
  • New line markings, stockpile layout and traffic flow to improve customer experience, queuing and safety;
  • Repair of old asphalt roads;
  • Relocation of polystyrene and household mixed recycling in the bottom area;
  • Dedicated drop off lane for RecycleWorld items and waste oil, and
  • Construction of segregated staff footpath and pedestrian walkway to improve safety.

 

Redlands Coast has eight Waste and Recycling Centres - two on the mainland and six island Recycling and Waste Centres.
