Man taking rubbish bins to the curb

There are no public holidays for our kerbside waste collection service. Collection is completed Monday to Friday including all public holidays such as:

  • New Years Day
  • Australia Day
  • Show Holidays
  • Good Friday
  • Easter Monday
  • ANZAC Day
  • Labour Day
  • Queens birthday
  • Christmas Day
  • Boxing Day

Please ensure that your bins are on the kerbside by 6am on the collection day (by 5am in the Toowoomba CBD area).

Waste collection on Christmas Day

If your collection falls on Christmas day it will commence earlier than normal, from 5am across the Region. It is recommended that your bins are placed out the night before.

For opening hours of your local waste facility on public holidays please open the waste operating hours article.

Waste collection on Show Holidays

Residents living around any of the Region's showgrounds may experience changed collection times due to an increase in traffic. We recommend that you place your bins out the night before and where possible, place them on the edge of your driveway next to the kerbside so that the truck can reach them if a car parks in front. 

Waste collection on Anzac Day

To avoid marches and dawn services, the route taken by the waste trucks may change. It's recommended that your bins are placed out the night before.
