Waste facility layout

 

How to pack your load

Pack your vehicle so that it's easy to empty at the facility. Rubbish on the bottom, recycling and re-usable items in the middle and green waste, scrap metal and bulky items at the top. You can do several laps of the facility if required.


What the facility offers

The is a waste transfer facility, not a landfill.  This means that odour from the site is negligible. Landfill continues at the Toowoomba Waste Management Centre, on Hermitage Road. We regularly transport waste off-site and depending on the item, recycled, reprocessed or buried in landfill. This process provides a more efficient way to manage many different types of waste from a variety of different sources, safely. 
 

Future projects 

We are preparing for the future and planning to build well-thought-out facilities. The Greater Toowoomba Waste Management Facility is used as a model for these smaller size facilities. For information on these facilities, open the Major projects - water and waste page.

Open: Thursday to Sunday 9am to 4pm.

How to pack your load

Pack your vehicle so that it's easy to offload at the facility. Place rubbish on the bottom, recycling and re-usable items in the middle and general waste (non-hazardous), scrap metal and bulky items at the top. It's possible to do several laps of the facility if required.

 

What the facility offers

The is a waste transfer facility, not a landfill.  This means that odour from the site is minor. Landfill continues at the Toowoomba Waste Management Centre, on Hermitage Road. We regularly transport waste off-site and depending on the item, recycled, reprocessed or buried in landfill. This process provides a more efficient way to manage many different types of waste from a variety of different sources, safely.
 

Open: Friday to Sunday 10am to 4pm.

Public holidays including Christmas Day and New Years Day is as advertised by the tip shop.
