Public waste and recycling facilities in Queensland

Across Queensland, local government and private industry operate a range of waste facilities designed to accept waste from everyday household, business and construction activities. Many of these waste facilities are landfills, however a growing number are facilities that provide opportunities for re-use and recycling of materials such as aluminium cans, batteries and metal.

This map identifies a range of waste facilities entered on the Queensland Government’s environmental authority register including:

  • landfills
  • transfer stations
  • metal recyclers
  • construction and demolition recyclers
  • organic processors
  • battery recyclers
  • tyre recyclers
  • paint recyclers.

Note: The facilities which accept multiple waste types can be identified through the map legend. At the time of mapping all of these facilities were open to the public.

The map will be updated on a regular basis.
