We all enjoy Brisbane for its bohemian lifestyle and the beautiful climate with over 280 days of sunshine. It has all the advantages of a modern city; it’s super easy to get around and enjoy the diverse districts like South Bank, West End, Mount Coot-tha, Spring Hill, Manly Harbour, St Lucia, South Brisbane, Toowong and Indooroopilly.

When it comes to disposing of rubbish, the city has a large choice of services both public and privately operated, including rubbish removal in Brisbane. Here is a quick rundown of your options.

Resource recovery centres

If you have a trailer, there are four main tips strategically located around Brisbane, Chandler in the south east, Ferny Grove in the north west, Nudgee in the north east and Willawong in the south west. These are great for small loads of household or Green waste drop offs with the option to use the Council waste vouchers or pay a fee.

Kerbside collection

Each suburb in Brisbane receives a yearly kerbside collection alternating between household and green waste. You can see more details from Brisbane City Council website but unfortunately these services have been put on hold until July 2022 because of COVID 19 impacts.

Skip bin hire

There are several private businesses offering this service around Brisbane. 1300Clearout offers 7 cubic metre bins for green, household and commercial rubbish which can be kept for 7 days for you to fill at your leisure.   The skips have opening doors which makes it easy for loading those awkward heavy items and prices start at $185. For more details please see https://1300clearout.com.au/skip-bin-hire/.

Hands on rubbish removal services

If you do not have a trailer or the time to haul your rubbish to the tip there is a rubbish removal Brisbane service that will make the whole process pain free. 1300Clearout has a fleet of 10 cubic metre trucks that will turn up with a team to load all your items quickly and pain free. The beauty of this service is that you are charged by volume, so you only pay for the items they load. So whether you have a single fridge, contents of a shed, or managing a deceased estate, they can provide a service level to suit. The charges are up front and easy to understand, starting at $149 for a quarter of a truck and $549 for a full 10 cubic metre load.

If your items are in a reasonable state, giving them a second chance of life is a great option. Here are a few ways you can contribute to recycling:

  • Charity shops

These are located all through Brisbane suburbs and are a great way to give your clothes and small furniture items a new home while raising much needed money for charitable organisations. Simply Google Vinnies, Salvos, Lifeline, Thrift shop, and RSPCA for more details. Another good option is the GIVIT charity which puts people in direct contact with members of the community who are looking for specific items. Some of the major charities will pick up from your home, but please arrange this several weeks ahead as they can be booked up.

  • Tip Shops

These are council run and often located at the resource recovery centres. These are great places for recycling cardboard, plastics, books and car batteries.

1300 Clearout offers recycling with their hands-on rubbish removal at no extra charge. Over the last 14 years we have recycled many tonnes of items including white goods, sofas, cupboards, tools, metal, outdoor furniture, plastics and cardboard, household furnishings, collectables, books and sporting equipment. Also, when we collect a load that is all green waste, we are able to recycle 100% of the load. Talk to the team at 1300 Clearout for more details.

Brisbane Waste Vouchers

Every year, Brisbane City Council issues waste vouchers to all residents. Each resident is issued with 10 Vouchers that can either be used as payment at the council resource recovery centres or can be given to 1300 Clearout to receive a discount on the cost of their service. Please call our friendly team if you have any vouchers you would like to use as part payment.
