Brisbane signs new kerbside contract

A Brisbane-based business will continue to deliver the City’s annual kerbside collection for another four years.

Lord Mayor, Adrian Schrinner congratulated Salisbury-based business Curbside Services on being awarded the contract to deliver kerbside collection.

“An annual kerbside collection service makes it affordable and easy for households to dispose of large items and keeps our city clean, green and sustainable,” Lord Mayor Schrinner said.

“Curbside Services is based in Salisbury and has done an incredible job delivering kerbside collection for our city over the past 20 years.

“I am so pleased Curbside Services has agreed to continue to deliver this service for residents and make ongoing commitments to work with local businesses SIMS metal and Council’s Treasure Troves.”

Around 230,000 households, or almost 50% of all Brisbane households, use the annual kerbside collection service every year.

In the past financial year more than 16,800 tonnes of items were collected as part of the standard annual kerbside collection. This is in addition to the 75,000 tonnes of waste collected from more than 3,000 streets in early 2022 as part or Operation Collect following the devastating February floods.

Lord Mayor Schrinner said residents could use the free and convenient collection service to dispose of large household items, including furniture, white goods, and electronic waste.

“In addition to the annual kerbside collection service, all households also receive free waste vouchers, giving residents 10 free tips to the tip and helping residents save up to $127 a year,” he said.

“I want to ensure the Brisbane of tomorrow is better than the Brisbane of today and part of that is ensuring rubbish is disposed of the right way.

“This is why we brought back the city-wide kerbside collection a year ahead of schedule in 2022 and will continue to work with local businesses to deliver this service for generations to come.”
