Free green waste disposal

As the wet season draws to a close, Cairns Regional Council is offering free disposal of green waste from this Saturday 26 April until Sunday 4 May.

Domestic green waste – such as garden trimmings, palm fronds and grass clippings – will be accepted at the following CRC waste transfer stations at no charge during the free drop-off period:

·         Portsmith Transfer Station (Open 7 days 8.30 am – 5.15pm)

·         Smithfield Transfer Station (Mon to Sat 7am – 5.15pm, Sun 9am – 5.15pm)

·         Gordonvale Transfer Station (7 days 8.30 am – 5:15pm)

·         Babinda Transfer Station (Mon, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sun 8.30am – 4.30pm weather permitting)


Green waste collected during this period will be mulched and offered back to residents at no charge at a later date.

Cars, utilities, trailers and light trucks up to 4 tonnes maximum GVM will be allowed access to the free drop-off. Normal rates will apply for other waste, including green waste from garden contractors on behalf of residents.

Residents are reminded that there will not be a kerbside collection for green waste. However, small amounts of green waste can be placed in the green-lid bin.
