Kerbside Collection Coming to Forest Lake

Kerbside collection is here again and is now moving to Forest Lake next. If you are looking to dispose of large household items, here’s your chance.

To help with the collection, residents are reminded that bins should be placed on the kerbside in front of their property by 6:00 am on Monday, 17 June 2019.

When putting out items for collection, see Brisbane City Council’s checklist of acceptable items. You can place them the weekend before the collection, otherwise you may be charged with illegal dumping fines.

Council will not collect items like bricks and concrete; commercial builders waste; dirt and stones; garden waste; gas bottles; general household waste; glass and mirrors; hazardous wastes; liquids; and household waste that normally goes into your waste or recycling bin.

If you’re planning to get rid of old refrigerators and cupboards, remember to remove doors and keep the items secure if severe weather is expected.

For recycling tips and to receive push notification about your next kerbside collection service, download the Brisbane bin and recycling app. It can be downloaded for free through App Store, Google Play, and Microsoft app store.

Aside from providing residents with general information about bin collection, the app also provides general information Council’s waste facilities, with maps and directions.

Resource Recovery Options

If in usable condition, you can donate your large household items to contribute to a cleaner and greener city.

GIVIT is one of the organisations that can help you reuse and recycle large household items. It connects you to trusted charities in a private and safe way.

Like GIVIT, the National Association of Charitable Recycling Organisations Inc. (NACRO) accepts clothing, furniture, household and workplace goods to provide for the disadvantaged and fund vital community welfare programs.
