Working hard for Calamvale Ward


Kerbside Collection

Each financial year Brisbane City Council conducts a FREE kerbside collection service for Brisbane residents to assist in the disposal of bulky items.

The collections are held on a specific week for each suburb. You will be notified with a flyer delivered to your property at least one week before the collection starts in your suburb.

Acceptable items may include:

  • furniture and white goods (fridges)
  • household appliances, including stoves
  • carpet and lino
  • bath and laundry tubs
  • wood products
  • bicycles

Unacceptable items may include:

  • vegetation (e.g. trees, grass, potted plants)
  • dirt and stones
  • bricks and concrete
  • commercial builders waste
  • car parts and tyres
  • general household waste (e.g. food scraps)
  • liquids
  • hazardous wastes (e.g. chemicals, oil, asbestos)
  • gas bottles
  • glass and mirrors
  • household waste that normally goes into your refuse or recycling bin

Council will not collect unacceptable items placed on the kerb and illegal dumping fines may apply if unacceptable material is not removed.

When putting out items for collection please remember:

  • to keep the piles tidy on the kerb so the footpath or roadway is kept clear
  • Council will not collect piles larger than two cubic metres (equal to a small box trailer load)
  • doors must be removed from refrigerators and cupboards
  • do not leave sharp or dangerous objects
  • items must be able to be easily and safely lifted by two people

Residents are reminded not to place items on the kerb until the weekend before the collection date. Illegal dumping fines may apply if items are placed on the kerb outside the scheduled collection period.
