Transfer Stations and Landfill


To help slow the spread of COVID-19, Council’s waste facilities will be accepting card payments only until further notice.

Townsville City Council is still delivering essential services throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Although our waste facilities remain open, Council urges residents to only visit when essential.

Social distancing and safety requirements apply and may result in delays.

How to avoid or reduce visits:

  • Postpone your visit until you have a full load of waste.
  • Make the most of your general waste and recycling bin collections.
  • Reuse, recycle or re-purpose waste materials.

Townsville Transfer Stations and Landfill

Townsville City Council operates one landfill and five transfer stations that are open to the public for the purpose of waste disposal and resource recovery of reusable and recyclable products.

Locations, opening hours & waste accepted

All waste facilities are closed to the public on Good Friday and Christmas Day.

The weight of waste is measured through the use of weighbridges onsite. Please note, deemed weights will apply at some facilities if a weighbridge is not operational.
