Bin and waste collection services
The garbage collection schedule will return to normal from Monday, March 7, 2022.
There may be delays in the delivery of new bins and the replacement of damaged and stolen bins.
Due to unprecedented flooding, we were unable to empty recycling bins in some suburbs last week. Recycling bins in the following suburbs will now be emptied on the next scheduled collection day:
- South Rochedale
- Jimboomba West
- daisy hill
- Slacks Creek
- Shailer Park
- Waterford West
- Logan Center
To find out your next scheduled recycling day, visit MyProperty if you have excess recycling, you are welcome to take it to a Council waste and recycling facility free of charge.
Please sort your recycling items as follows for easy disposal:
- card / paper
- glass bottles
- plastic bottles
- cans / boxes
Free sidewalk cleaning in a residential area affected by flooding
Free curbside collection of debris and flood-damaged items will be available in flood-affected residential areas of the City of Logan. This is not a city-wide collection. This flood waste cleanup will only occur on streets where residential properties have been inundated by floodwaters. Residential properties that have not been inundated by flood waters will not receive the flood waste cleanup service.
Collections will begin from Monday, March 7, 2022 to give local residents time to deposit their waste on the sidewalk.
To facilitate the collection process, waste should be placed as neatly as possible in separate piles for yard waste, white goods, furniture and construction waste. Contact the Council if you have flood-affected asbestos waste that needs to be disposed of.
All food waste should be placed in the general waste wheelie bin for collection.
Residents can also dispose of flood waste free of charge at any of the Council’s waste and recycling facilities in Browns Plains, Beenleigh, Carbrook, Greenbank and Logan Village. Garbage loads larger than a full combination of utilities and trailers must be delivered to Browns Plains, as our other facilities do not have the storage capacity for larger garbage truck loads.
Flood Cleanup Frequently Asked Questions
In which streets/areas/suburbs will the flood waste cleanup take place?
This will only happen on streets where residential properties have been inundated by floodwaters. Residential properties that have not been inundated by flood waters will not receive the flood waste cleanup service.
What day will my street be cleaned?
Given the widespread impacts, we cannot provide a specific day when collection will take place in specific areas. It may take some time for the cleaning to complete.
How will the Council collect the waste from the floods?
It will be a combination of teams collecting it manually where it is safe to do so. Waste that cannot be handled manually will be removed with machines.
When will normal curbside cleaning services resume?
From May 2, 2022, normal sidewalk cleaning services will resume. Please see the Kerbside cleanup page for a list of suburbs and start dates.
Disposal of flood-related waste
If your property in Logan has been impacted by recent flooding, you can bring your flood-related waste to one of our waste and recycling facilities for free.
Please bring more than a full large trailer to the Browns Plains facility as our other facilities are beginning to struggle with volumes.
We encourage residents to separate construction waste, rubble and wood from general waste. Asbestos waste must be bagged and is only accepted at the Browns Plains facility.
At the start of the cleaning, we expect long queues. We ask residents to be patient with staff and other residents.
