Free green waste drop off and sandbag collection 21-29 November

Sat 21 Nov 2020

Location: Portsmith, Gordonvale, Smithfield, Babinda

Take the opportunity to clean up your yard and drop off your domestic green waste for FREE at Council’s Transfer Stations from Saturday 21 November to Sunday 29 November 2020.

Residents taking advantage of this month’s free green waste disposal are encouraged to make a voluntary gold coin donation at the waste transfer station, which will support the Mayor’s Christmas Cheer Appeal.

While dropping off your waste, residents in coastal, low-lying or flood prone areas are invited to grab some free sandbags to have on hand, should severe weather threaten the region.

Bags will be provided for residents to fill with sand on site. Scoops for filling will be supplied. Sandbags are for residential use only and will be available from all of Council’s waste transfer stations until supplies run out.

Residential green waste can be dropped off free of charge at the following locations:

  • Portsmith or Gordonvale Transfer Stations: 7 days, 8.30am to 5.15pm
  • Smithfield Transfer Station: Monday-Saturday 7am to 5.15pm, Sunday 9am to 5.15pm
  • Babinda Transfer Station: Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 8.30am to 4.45pm

NOTE: Domestic cars, utilities and/or trailers and light trucks (up to GVM 4 tonnes) only. Normal charges apply for disposal of any other waste.

Remember illegal dumping can incur a fine; it affects the environment and the safety of individuals. Please report any illegal dumping to 1300 69 22 47.
