[QLD] Save $30 on Establishment Fee of a Council Green Waste Bin @ Brisbane Council


Brisbane City Council is waiving the $30 establishment fee for green bins in October 2018. It popped up on my Brisbane Bin app (good for reminding when the rubbish truck is coming). The link includes a list of acceptable and unacceptable items for the green bin.

While the establishment fee is waived, there is an ongoing fee of $83.92 per year.

This is also similar to a deal posted in 2016 -

    Just throw my green waste in the normal bin.

      If you can, just compost it in the backyard.

      Burn it.

    • You monster! Think of all the flowers and lush lawn that will inevitably take over at the dump. Unless someone’s dumping herbicide.

    • A true ozbargainer will use this green waste to manufacture crude paper products.

      • Look at this fatcat with calories to waste manufacturing crude paper products.

    Weird. It’s free with my council and they encourage you to put your food scraps in there.

    There's a bin app?

    Wow, there truly is an app for everything.

    • What's wrong with using your brain to remember when to put the bin out?

      • +6

        No need, I have neighbours for that

          Until someone puts out their recycling bin in error and everyone follows suit and then the entire system breaks down

            @CriticalImpact: Happens regularly. The system recovers

            • @Hinee: It all works out in the end. Has done for years, before apps even existed.

      • I should use my brain, but in BNE, we also need to put out the recycling bin every other week. I admit I get confused sometimes and I just check the app.

    • I've been using What Bin Day which is free unless you have more than one property.

    Green bins are great if you have a lot of garden or lawn to maintain. Grass isn't that great for composting as it has too much nitrogen and unless you have a lot of trees there just isn't enough brown compost to balance it out. I also recommend upgrading to the bigger recycling bins as that is just a one-off cost with no ongoing.

  • Thanks OP, got 3. Oh, wait…

  • These aren't normally free, and there is an annual fee?

    Sending less to landfill saves the council money…
