There are seven waste transfer stations in the Rockhampton Region. Waste is transported by Rockhampton Regional Waste and Recycling or their subcontractors to the region's only landfill at Lakes Creek Road Waste Management Facility for disposal, and recoverable resources are transported to centralised recycling collection points.
- Our regional Waste Transfer Stations only accept domestic waste quantities, less than 2 tonnes, and do not accept any quantity of commercial waste. Waste loads in excess of operational limits will be directed to the Lakes Creek Road Waste Management Facility in North Rockhampton.
- A commercial green waste customer is determined as any customer that arrives at a Waste Transfer Station in a vehicle displaying a green waste service with a load greater than a ute/6 x 4 trailer. Commercial green waste customers will be directed to the Lakes Creek Road Waste Management Facility for the disposal of their green waste.
