Recycling and Waste Facts and Figures

The below graph represents the volumes (tonnages) of waste and recyclables collected from kerbside collections per month in the Designated Waste Collection Areas for the financial period 2016/2017.

The waste collected goes to the Yeppoon Landfill for burial.

The recyclables collected go to the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) located at Parkhurst, Rockhampton. Only those items that are non-recyclable* will be taken to landfill and buried.

* These are items that have been placed in the Recycling MGBs and taken to the MRF resulting in contamination of the recycling stream.
