Bins and Waste

Bin liners are located either on top of the kitchen fridge. If you come across a bin that is full, you should empty it into an outside skip and put in new bin liner.

We have lots of bins inside, they are there to collect rubbish but don't forget to empty them. General waste bins are either unmarked, or red in colour.

There are also a number of small plastic bins that you can move around your work area. This makes collection of rubbish from messy projects like electronics or battery recycling more convenient. Please empty these into the larger inside bins before you leave.

We have a designated recycling bin in the kitchen area, and a larger recycling skip outside. All recyclable materials (such as cardboard, hard plastics and paper) should be recycled. Take note that take away food packaging is generally not recyclable unless it's clean and doesn't have a waxy coating. For collection of the larger skip bin call 131335 or visit

We encourage members to recycle all drinking cans and redeemable bottles, both from our on site vending machines and any that are bought on site. There is a yellow recycling bin with a can sized hole on the top near the kitchen area for this purpose. When this bin is full, it should be emptied into the bigger can recycling skip outside that is emptied regularly by the scouts.

We get money back from each can collected thanks to the QLD government's container recycling scheme, so make sure to recycle! FOR COLLECTION: Call Depot on 07 3290 0718 or email them on You can also contact Gavin on 0447 446 211 or Lisa on 0433 219 856

We have an on site E-Waste recycling bin courtesy of Substation 33. You can use this bin to recycle non-commercial quantities of electronics such as TV screens, printers, computers, etc. Please do not leave anything outside or on top of this bin. If it's full, let the executive know and try again another day. Do not recycle bare batteries here as it is a fire hazard. Take them to Aldi. Contained batteries such as drill batteries and laptops are acceptable.

All of our inside bins need to be regularly emptied into our large skip bins outside. We have a few around, and these locations are explained on the map below.
