Paint Disposal through Paintback
Paint is now able to be disposed, free of charge, at Boonah, Canungra and Central (Beaudesert) Transfer Stations, through the Paintback program. Paintback enables households and trade painters to responsibly dispose of unwanted paint and packaging. Paintback separates the packaging and waste liquid for treatment. The containers are recycled. Waste paint is treated in a number of ways, including energy recovery for solvent, and liquid/solid separation for water-based paint, significantly minimising disposal to landfill. Paintback accepts the following products:
- Interior and exterior architectural paint
- Deck coatings and floor paints
- Undercoats and sealers
- Stains and shellacs
- Varnishes and urethanes (single component)
- Wood coatings and packaging.
Paintback accepts up to 100 litres per visit, stowed in containers of 20lt or less. Paint Back cannot take industrial and specialist coatings and other tints and surface treatments. Please refer to the Paint Back website for further acceptance criteria details.
E-waste recycling is available at the Tamborine Mountain, Canungra and Beaudesert transfer stations. This service is free to residents and includes many electronic household items that can be taken to these sites for recycling.

Chemical drum disposal
Eligible drums can be taken to designated DrumMuster collection points. When you arrive please advise the tipmaster on site that you have drums to be disposed of by DrumMuster.
Eligible containers are non-returnable metal and plastic containers marked with the DrumMuster eligible container logo. This logo may be applied to the container either as a sticker, printed as part of the label or embossed into the container material.
All containers must be triple rinsed and have the lids removed before delivering to the transfer station. Failure to do this may result in your containers not being accepted. Commercial disposal charges apply to returns in excess of 250 kilograms. Drums should be wrapped in manageable sizes as they will need to be unloaded by hand and placed in the designated DrumMuster area.
DrumMuster can only reimburse Council for the collection of ‘levy paid’ containers carrying the DrumMaster eligible container logo. Some manufacturers have not joined the program and subsequently their containers are not part of DrumMuster.
Variation to the scope of the program since its inception allows acceptance of previously non-eligible containers such as surfactants, dairy chemicals and liquid fertilisers from participating manufacturers. The program will not accept petroleum or liquid chlorine containers that are used for non agricultural purposes. All eligible containers should carry the DrumMuster logo.

Disposal of asbestos, dead animals and other regulated waste
Dead animals, limited regulated wastes and small quantities of asbestos are accepted at the Central Landfill located at Bromelton. Asbestos must be wet down and double wrapped in plastic before transporting to the waste facility. Where possible, 24 hours notice should be provided to the Waste Department before arriving at the waste facility and delivery should be prior to 3pm to ensure contractor availability.
Disposal of commercial quantities of asbestos and other regulated waste must be accompanied by a Department of Environment and Resource Management Waste Transport Certificate.
NOTE: Special handling and burial fees apply.
