Brisbane residents can now mark their calendar for when Council’s popular kerbside collection service will go through their suburb.

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said the release of the 2023-24 kerbside collection schedule will help residents plan for the service and potentially avoid having to pay to have items taken to a Council resource recovery centre.

“We’re committed to keeping Brisbane clean and green and our kerbside large item collection service is a big part of that,” Cr Schrinner said.

“Kerbside collection provides a safe and free way to discard large items, helping residents keep their homes clean while also reducing illegal dumping.

There’s also a significant amount of items that are picked up and reused by other residents.”

Cr Schrinner encouraged residents to also consider whether items can be donated or recycled rather than discarded.

“These could include donating items to friends, family, a local charity or recycling eligible items at one of Council’s four resource recovery centres,” he said.

Kerbside collection accepts a range of large items including fridges, mattresses and furniture. Items should be placed on the kerb in front of the property by 6am on the first day of the collection period.
