Cairncross Landfill Expansion

The landfill was established in 2000 and accepts all of the waste from our local government area (LGA). 

In November 2019, Council obtained development consent for the expansion of the Cairncross Landfill. This expansion will allow for three more landfill stages and a further 36 years of landfill life for the LGA.

Sub-stages 1A, 1C and 1E began construction in January 2021, with expected completion in early 2022 providing approximately 9 more years of landfill life for the Port Macquarie-Hastings LGA. 

Condition C18 of the conditions of consent requires Council to make information and documents pertaining to the landfill expansion publicly available on its website. These are available below:
