Events & Notices

The City of Gold Coast introduced an optional green waste service in 2013. For around $1 per week, you can have a 240-litre green waste bin at your home. All your garden clippings, palm fronds, leaves, branches and green waste can be collected every fortnight, saving you precious time. Green waste bins are an easy and affordable way for residents and businesses to quickly and easily dispose of their green garden waste. The green waste bin is serviced fortnightly on the alternate week to the yellow lid recycling bin. The green waste bin can accept grass clippings, palm fronds, prunings, weeds, leaves and small branches. Both property owners and tenants can apply for this service. Fees apply for this service. The service is currently restricted to urban properties of the Gold Coast and is available in 240 litre bin size only. Check your service eligibility below.
