Transfer Stations and Landfills

Free Dump Weekend

Townsville City Council is providing residents with another free dump weekend in October. The next free dump weekend will be held from Friday 26 October - Monday 29 October 2018.

Residents can take advantage of unlimited free dumping of domestic waste over four days at the Jensen, Hervey Range, Stuart and Magnetic Island facilities. Toomulla and Bluewater Transfer Stations will also be open during normal hours of operation.

Don’t wait until the free dump weekend to dispose of your green waste and recycling – it’s free all year round!
