****2011 UPDATE: Please Note: if you are looking for current dates please visit BCC wesbite:
They have a list of Northside and Southside dates all nicely sorted by suburb. Collections are now held ANNUALLY!! YAY!!
I like to think they followed my suggestion from way back!!*****

Let me just say I love kerbside collections!!! We have picked up from the kerbside such delightful items as a bookcase, insect screening, a jumper (my mum, dont ask!!), a laundry tub & the ubiqutous pieces of wood, etc, etc. And this is all sans car, mind you!

Brisbane city council has a schedule of collections dates but unfortunately you have to select a suburb then it will bring up the dates and what type it is (green or household items).

I made a suggestion to the council that they could create a page where they gave the details for every suburb so that keen kerbside crawlers like myself could know what was happening each weekend, etc, and they replied saying they will keep in mind my suggestion when the list is put up for the new financial year.

In the meantime, I looked into their html source code so I could get the dates info and with a bit of editing I have created a list of the suburbs and dates sorted by date (I have even included the green waste, even though we are more interested in the general items)

2010 UPDATE: You can now search by month on the BCC website, so if you want to know what collections are on in March, you select March and a list of areas will appear. yay!! According to the BCC The collection schedule for the 2010/2011 financial year will be available online by 1 July 2010.

Happy kerbisde collecting!!

    Could you please explain to me why there is no date in your calender for household item kerb side collection in the Ascot and Albion region for 2008. It only comes up green waste. People pay rates for Kerb side collection.

  3. Could you please let me know by return email when the kerbside collections start in the Welsby Street area of New farm 4005

  4. Hi there ! I was just looking for a complete list of kerbside collections in different suburbs and found this link -
