Waste and recycling

Sustainable resource recovery and management

City of Gold Coast collects waste and recyclables from nearly 200,000 households and businesses across the city. We also run 12 Waste and Recycling Centres where you can drop off waste and recyclables 363 days a year.

But that's just the basics. We also service more than 1000 public bins, run an annual bulk waste collection (kerbside clean-up), clean up litter and illegal dumping, handle waste management services for events, plan for and build new infrastructure for processing waste and recyclables, and have a community and schools education program to help avoid waste and reduce litter.

Explore the website to find out what you can do to reduce, reuse and recycle, and how we can help you manage your waste.
