Kerbside Collection Coming to Aspley: Get Your Recycling Game On

Brisbane City Council’s Kerbside Collection is coming to Aspley on Monday, 10 September 2018. It’s about time to get rid of those big unwanted items at last. Have you considered recycling too?

Currently, Queensland’s recycling rate of 44% is one of the lowest in Australia. With this, it is probably a good idea to help improve Queensland’s recycling rate by recycling at home.

Brisbane City Council has been actively campaigning about recycling and reducing waste. In fact, the Council has provided several ways for households to get into recycling.

Before placing your items out for the kerbside collection, it pays to give it another look. If you think some of the items can still be used by others, you can donate them to the Council’s tip shop instead.

Brisbane City Council’s  Northside Tip Shop is located at 27A Prosperity Place, Geebung which is 5.1 km away from Aspley. The tip shop accepts  quality, reusable household items such as:

  • household furnishings
  • collectables
  • books
  • toys
  • sporting equipment

Take note that  Tip shop donations from vehicles under 4.5 tonnes Combined Gross Vehicle Mass (CGVM) do not attract a disposal fee. Also, make sure that the items are clean and working, otherwise, it might be refused by the onsite staff.
