Proposed Extension of Landfill - Jackson Street Waste Management Centre

Glenorchy City Council has reviewed its Waste Management Strategy. To download the new Glenorchy City Council Waste Management Strategy Revised 2019, please click here.

We are working with the community to achieve our vision for Glenorchy as a clean and healthy city, a city we are proud of, where waste is minimised, and resources are conserved for the future. Council is committed to providing affordable, cost-effective and environmentally sound waste services for the community.

It is anticipated that the current landfill area at the Jackson Street Waste Management Centre will close in 2020. Council is developing a business case to construct a new cell in the quarry area at Jackson Street that will extend the life of the landfill to 2030.
