On 18 June, Forest Lake will have its kerbside collection. This annual service by the Brisbane City Council helps residents dispose of large household items.

There are certain rules that must be followed to ensure that all of the items you place outside will be taken by the council.

Here you can find the acceptable and unacceptable items. You can also download the Brisbane Bin and Recycling App on your smartphones to keep up-to-date and at the same time, be fully informed when it comes to recycling, kerbside collection dates, and other relevant information.

Now, let’s talk about the unofficial rules. These rules also promote efficiency for kerbside collection.

  • If you think an item is still useful, you can donate it to an op shop instead.
  • You can get items from other people’s piles before collection time, but make sure to keep kerb tidy.
  • Should you get an item from other people’s piles outside of their homes, you are not allowed to knock on their front door and ask them questions about the items.
  • Keep your kerb as neat as possible.

Have a great kerbside collection!
