Rubbish & Landfill

The Southern Cross Landfill Facility is now operational to the public during the stated operating hours.  The landfill access road feeds off Southern Cross South Road, approximately 4.6km’s south of the Great Eastern Highway intersection.

The landfill facility is a staffed site, please ensure you follow directions from the attendant for your safety, and the safety of others using the site.  To ensure costs are kept to a minimum, the operating hours for the site will be restricted.
