Council Recycling

Does Council offer a Kerbside Recycling Service?

No, at this stage, Council is one of the forty-four (44) of seventy-seven (77) Queensland Council’s that does not offer a kerbside recycling collection service.  Market isolation, tyranny of distance, public consultation and various economic factors have been instrumental deciding Council’s path.

Does Council Recycle?

Most recycling in Charters Towers is achieved through the State Government's 'Containers for Change' scheme.  This is complemented by recycling activities for scrap steel at the approved landfills and various programs like the Garage Sale Trail.  All recycling options are considered and increases in recycling activity are expected as we move towards a circular economy.

Does Council have a future direction for Kerbside Recycling?

Council does not currently provide a kerbside collection service, however it is a key action in Council's Community Strategic Plan 2023-2033.
