We are constructing a new waste transfer facility at Greenmount to allow for the closure of the existing landfill which is nearing capacity. In the 2024/25 budget, $300 000 has been allocated to this project.

Waste transfer facilities are a cleaner waste management solution than landfill, improving the public experience when visiting the waste facility, reducing the impacts to the community associated with landfill activity and ensuring environmental compliance. Storage of waste is in bulk bins before being transported to landfill locations offsite. This process reduces the extent of odour, dust, and animal/rodent control required. Litter prevention controls ensure windblown litter from the facility is prevented from entering drains.

The design of the new facility will be a smaller version of the Greater Toowoomba Waste Management Facility on O'Mara Road, Wellcamp with similar waste management functions and opportunities to maximise diversion from landfill. The new facility will be constructed on the existing site.

During the closure, please use alternative waste facilities at:

  • Clifton Waste Management Facility: Logan Road, Clifton.  
    • Open Monday and Friday from 1pm to 5pm, Wednesday from 8am to noon, and Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm.
  • Greater Toowoomba Waste Management Facility:270 O’Mara Road, Wellcamp.
    • Open Monday to Friday 7am to 5pm and Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 5pm.
