Pimpama Green Organics Drop and Go
City residents are now able to drive in and drop green organics directly off the back of your vehicle or trailer onto a designated ground level area. Commercial mowing and landscape gardeners will be required to pay to use this service. Accepts flowers, garden prunings, grass clippings, leaves, tree branches and trunks as well as weeds. Rocks, stones, potting mix, or any other kind of waste is not accepted.
Whilst the operating hours state it is open till 4:30pm, many customers have complained that the gates shut at 4:20pm so be mindful to plan your drop-off accordingly.
White goods are accepted, and there are separate disposal facilities for recycling metal, cardboard or green waste, however we do recommend you call them before attempting to dispose of any green waste as some residents have stated that green waste is not currently accepted.
Some residents have asked if there is a shop onsite where you can buy old treasures however this is just a tip, there is no shop available.
Stapylton Waste and Recycling Centre allows you to recycle your used cardboard and paper for free, as long as you are a Gold Coast resident. Commercial landfill is also accepted however fees do apply. The majority of customers have noted a good experience, outlining that access to the centre is easy and there is plenty of room to manoeuvre your vehicle around. One reviewer, Terry Jones, had a different experience though, noting “You get Charged $55 to place your E-waste in the Recycling bins at this place when it is supposed to be free to dispose of ewaste as mandated by council.”
General waste such as car batteries, cardboard, concrete, cooking oil, Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRB), eWaste, empty gas bottles, household hazardous waste e.g. pool chlorine, herbicides, oven cleaners, paint (maximum 20 litres), motor oil, scrap metal, soil and whitegoods are accepted.

Before heading out to any of the centres be sure to sort to your load by grouping similar materials together in your trailer or ute, this will make your trip easier and more efficient. We recommend placing green waste and timber towards the front of your vehicle, and general waste at the back. If you have scrap metal this should be placed on top where it can be unloaded first.

mixed loads – 2.1 metres long x 1.5 metres wide x 0.6 metres high
green waste loads – 2.1 metres long x 1.5 metres wide x 1 metre high
