WHAT GOES IN MY BINS?: Brisbane City Council has three different bins for household waste disposal. They are the general waste bin (red or black lid), the recycling bin (yellow lid) and the green waste bin (green lid). Visit to find out what items can be placed in each bin (and what items cannot be accepted in any of these bins). COMMUNITY COMPOST HUBS: Brisbane City Council has partnered with a number of community gardens around Brisbane to help residents turn kitchen scraps into nutrients for soil. This Community Compost Hub program encourages residents living near community composting hubs to regularly contribute their kitchen scraps to a community garden compost bin. With support from Council and community volunteer caretakers, you can learn about the benefits of composting and other ways to reduce the amount of food waste you create. There are currently 30 Community Compost Hub locations throughout Brisbane, with this network ever-expanding. Visit Council’s website to find your nearest Council community composting hub and register to start composting.
