Gracemere Landfill edging close to end of its life/fill plan

ASBESTOS and other hazardous materials will not be accepted at the Gracemere Landfill after April 26.

Rockhampton Regional Council send an advisory notice out today about the matter.

Council says the Gracemere Landfill will no longer be able to accept Asbestos / Asbestos Containing Materials or other Hazardous Wastes after April 226.

"This is because the Gracemere Landfill is edging towards the end of its life or fill plan meaning it will not be able to meet the requirement for these substances to be buried at least 2m from the final surface," the notice says.

These products continue to be accepted at the Lakes Creek Road Landfill in Rockhampton and the Yeppoon Landfill.

Please remember that existing hazardous waste acceptance conditions and the required 48 hours notice period continues to apply at these landfills.
