Tarragindi Residents: Declutter Responsibly with Kerbside Collection

Tired of that old couch hogging space in your living room? Kerbside collection comes to the rescue in Tarragindi!

Here’s how it works:

Schedule: For Tarragindi and neighbouring suburbs like Nathan and Salisbury, kerbside collection will run on the 20th of May 2024.

Reminders: Download the Council’s Brisbane Bin and Recycling app for free reminders and push notifications.

Preparation: Check the Council’s website to see what qualifies for kerbside collection and explore alternative options for usable items.

Collection Day: Place accepted items on the kerbside in front of your property by 6:00 a.m. on the first day of the collection period.

Think Twice Before You Toss:

The Council encourages residents to donate usable items to friends, family, charities, or reuse organisations like GIVIT or Charitable Recycling Australia. The Endeavour Foundation runs Brisbane’s Treasure Troves, which also accepts donations in good condition.

Acceptable: bathtubs, bicycles, carpets, electronics (minus batteries!), furniture, appliances, mattresses, small appliances, and wood under 1.5 metres.

Unacceptable: hazardous materials, garden waste, construction debris, car parts, liquids, batteries (dispose of them at Council’s resource recovery centres!), and large piles exceeding two cubic metres.

Important Tips:

  • Ensure easy and safe lifting for collection crews by keeping items manageable.
  • Remove the refrigerator and cupboard doors for easier handling.
  • Secure items during bad weather forecasts.

The council won’t collect unacceptable items left on the kerb, and illegal dumping fines may apply.

By utilising the kerbside collection service responsibly, Tarragindi residents can declutter their homes and contribute to a more sustainable environment.
