Waste Facilities

Council provides eight waste management and resource recovery facilities on the Coast. These facilities do not have public weighbridges. There are recycling and second hand markets at Buderim, Caloundra, Beerwah and Witta.

Visitors must wear closed in footwear at all facilities. This is a health and safety requirement. People wearing sandals or thongs will be refused entry.
