Where to Bring Items in Usable Condition

If you have items that are still in working condition, consider dropping them off at Brisbane’s Treasure Troves instead of simply leaving everything to the kerbside for collection.

Treasure Troves are a great place for a bargain, selling items donated through Brisbane City Council’s resource recovery centres. Not only does Treasure Troves help keep the city clean and green, you’re also contributing to a cause by donating your useful items to the tip shop. 

Treasure Troves is being managed by the Endeavour Foundation which helps people living with disabilities by providing them with opportunities and improving their well-being, through the profits collected from the shops. At present, there are two Treasure Troves in the city: one in Acacia Ridge and one in Geebung. 

How to Donate to Your Local Treasure Trove

Those who would like to donate to Treasure Troves must head to one of the Council’s resource recovery centres as donations cannot be made in-store. 

From Wavell Heights, the nearest recovery centre is at 1372 Nudgee Road, Nudgee Beach, which is a 15-minute drive via St Vincents Rd. It’s open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m.

If you only have recyclable items or tip shop donations, go to the free recycling area and sort your materials into the correct collection point. Acceptable Treasure Trove items include:

  • artwork antiques and sculptures
  • books
  • clothing – quality textiles and wearable clothing
  • furniture and other household items in good working order
  • kitchen utensils
  • shoes and bags
  • sporting equipment including bikes and exercise equipment
  • toys – good quality only (broken plastic toys must be recycled in the hard plastic bin)

Kerbside Collection Resumption

In April 2020, Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner announced that the kerbside collection will be paused until July 2022 so that funds can be reallocated for COVID-19 recovery initiatives. However, in July 2021, Cr Schrinner announced that the kerbside collection has been fast-tracked and included in the 2021-22 Budget so that it can resume a year earlier than planned.
