For information on disposal of special types of waste please click on the links below.

Please note that our waste management facilities do not accept:

  • Cooking oil
  • Contaminated soil
  • Liquid waste
  • Distress beacons (EPIRBs). This is because distress beacons can still send signals from the landfill. You can take unwanted beacons to 'Enirgi Power Storage' on Mellor Street, Gympie
  • Flares. You can take these to a coastguard location
  • Commercial quantities of engine oil
  • Chemicals
  • Car bodies and car parts containing automotive liquids.
