The landfill is for disposal of waste that cannot be recycled or composted. It is a critical part of our community's waste management infrastructure. The landfill is only open to commercial operators or by appointment. Please refer to the facilities page for location and opening hours, and the fees page for a full list of acceptable and non-acceptable material.

The Hyland Highway Landfill started operation in May 2009. The site contains 108.8 ha of Hancock Victorian Plantations-owned blue gum and pine plantations which will be progressively harvested until 2016. The areas harvested will be revegetated with indigenous plants, resulting in an area returned to bush. Landfill cells will also be rehabilitated and monitored for many years.
