Changes to accepted items at our waste and recycling centres

We're introducing changes to building material disposal at our waste and recycling centres. From 1 December 2022, Molendinar, Reedy Creek and Stapylton will accept these materials for recycling:

  • soil
  • sand
  • concrete
  • brick
  • tiles
  • asphalt

For us to recycle your construction and demolition materials, you will need to:

  • separate and sort your loads before you enter
  • make sure your load is not contaminated by risky materials or asbestos.

If you think your load may contain materials containing asbestos, strict disposal rules apply. Reedy Creek and Stapylton landfills will accept these materials for disposal. 

We ask that you read Disposal of asbestos for more information on the Asbestos Risk List. It also explains how to safely dispose of asbestos containing material.
