Get Ready To Clean Up and Remove Unwanted Household Items
Brisbane's popular Kerbside Collection Program returns from 12 July 2021 to collect and dispose of pesky and unwanted household waste items.

We all have them. That fridge that broke and is stored under the house or bicycles and toys that the kids have outgrown just sitting in the garage that you have been meaning to move on. Well, here to your chance to de-clutter and re-purpose those items.

Kerbside Collection is a residential waste management and resource recovery program run by the Brisbane City Council, where householders can place dis-used and unwanted items outside their residence on the kerb for free removal.

The popular Kerbside Collection Program was temporarily halted in 2020 (what was to be for 2 years) during the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak but returns with a $7.4 million dollar Council funding commitment.

This was met with some community concern which saw a petition created to attempt to overturn the decision. Many argued that it offers several advantages including:

Increasing recycling and re-purposing
Helping to keep households neat and clean
Limiting illegal dumping

Furniture, white goods, mattresses are just some of the items you may see piled up on the nature strips across Brisbane. But there are exclusions to what is collected. Items such as car batteries, cleaning solvents, garden waste and bricks are off the list.

The program re-boots with Southern suburbs of Algester, Calamvale and Parkinson leading the collection.

Kerbside Collection is open to residents regardless of whether they are owners or renters.

Head to the Council website page here to find out when Kerbside Collection is coming to your area and get ready to clean up and clear out those unwanted items!
