Transfer Stations and Landfills


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 Landfills

We have one operational landfill and five transfer stations that are open to the public for the purpose of waste disposal and depositing recycling. Council offers residents free household green waste and recycling disposal at all facilities, year round.
