RESIDENTS can clean out their homes of green waste and old furniture without having to travel to the tip.
A Logan City Council spokesperson said items stored neatly on footpaths would be collected as part of council’s annual kerbside clean up from later this month.
“Council's kerbside clean up is an annual service provided to help its residents dispose of large household items and green waste,” the spokesperson said.
Furniture, green waste and kitchen appliances such as stoves and dishwashers are accepted but perishable or dangerous to crush items are not.
Excluded rubbish includes gas cylinders, tyres, fire extinguishers, fibro materials and more.
Rubbish can be placed outside up to one week before collection begins, ready for 6am pick-up on collection start dates.
The spokesperson said rubbish could be piled up to two metres wide, one metre high and one metre deep but should not hide water meters or obstruct pedestrians or traffic.
Collection could take two weeks from start dates listed below.
