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 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.

Landfill works approval

On 30/12/2019 Environmental Protection Authority, Victoria (EPA) issued Works Approval to Latrobe City Council to;

“construct an extension to the existing Hyland Highway Landfill for the deposit of putrescible municipal waste, commercial and industrial solid inert waste, pneumatic tyres shredded into pieces <250 mm, and the permanent disposal of asbestos of domestic origin following storage in a designated temporary storage container by the weighbridge prior to placement in the landfill with associated landfill infrastructure“

There was a period of 21 days from the date of issue of Works Approval for interested (third) Parties to appeal against the works approval to Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT).

On 19 February 2019 EPA advised council that EPA have not been advised of any appeals of the Works Approval decision by EPA.
