The Cecil Plains Waste Management Facility replaced the old Cecil Plains Waste Landfill as part of the second stage of the implementation the Waste Management Strategy 2017 and Waste Infrastructure Plan.

The upgraded facility is a transfer station and not a landfill, meaning waste is not buried on site. It also provides greater opportunity for recycling and reuse with waste being diverted from landfill. Non-recyclable waste is separated on site and transferred to a fully engineered facility where it will be buried in landfill.

The design of the facility is based on the award winning Greater Toowoomba Waste Management Facility, but to a smaller scale. The new facility has been constructed on the existing site and, after closure, the old landfill will be rehabilitated and monitored to meet environmental requirements.

A broader range of recycling and resource recovery options is available, including scrap metal, green waste and a variety of other household recycling options.

Accessing the facility

Open: 7 days including public holidays, 8.30am to 4pm. Customers must exit the facility before 4.30pm.

How to use the facility

  2. Then drive to the resource recovery area (RRA - Yellow shed) for depositing recyclable and re-useable items.  Lifeline staff are on hand to help you.  Re-useable items are offered at a later time in the Smart Tip shop.
  3. After the RRA, drive to the residual waste area (RWT - Red shed) for all your items that are unable to be reused or recycled. 

Waste facility layout

 

How to pack your load

Pack your vehicle so that it's easy to off load at the facility - rubbish on the bottom, recycling and re-useable items in the middle and green waste, scrap metal and bulky items at the top. It's possible to do several laps of the facility if required.


What the facility offers

The facility operates as a waste transfer facility. It is not a landfill.  This means that odour from the site is negligible. Landfill continues at the Toowoomba Waste Management Centre, on Hermitage Road. Waste is transported regularly off site and depending on the item, it is recycled, reprocessed or buried in landfill. A waste transfer facility provides a more efficient way to safely manage many different types of waste from a variety of different sources. 
 

Future projects 

We are preparing for the future and are planning to build two new strategically placed facilities to the north and south of the city; Kleinton and Wyreema. The Greater Toowoomba Waste Management Facility is being used as a model for these facilities which will be smaller in size. For information on these facilities, open the Major projects - Water and waste page.
