The days of dumping waste for free are over for Rural Rockhampton residents

Rural Rockhampton residents will no longer be able to dump waste for free.

The Council has made moves to begin shutting down nine sites after asbestos, livestock carcasses, chemicals, live ammo, and leaking drums were found at rural rubbish collection points.

Due to the health and safety risks residents will need to use one of the region's four waste transfer stations at Alton Downs, Bouldercombe, Gracemere and Mount Morgan from the end of August.
