Lakes Creek Road Landfill to be expanded
An innovative option for waste disposal is set to bring a new lease of life to the Lakes Creek Road Landfill.
Today the Rockhampton Regional Council's Business Enterprise Committee agreed unanimously to recommend to the Council to "piggy back" on the Lakes Creek Road site and see more than 20 years added to its lifespan.
The decision was made in aim of providing continued waste disposal to the community in preparation for the current site's expiry in late 2016.
Following its closure, the piggy back option will allow building on top of existing capped landfill at the Lakes Creek Site.
A total of four landfill cells will be added to the site over a period of time, with the first being able to accept around 180,000 cubic metres.
