Magnetic Island Waste Transfer Station

Townsville City Council

The Mendi Group Constructed the New Magnetic Island Transfer Waste Station with Townsville City Council and Hutchinson Builders.

With the Picnic Bay Landfill Station approaching its ultimate capacity, it was decided that a waste transfer station be built to transport waste from Magnetic Island to be processed at the Stuart Landfill on the mainland.

The new facility delivers a long-term waste management strategy that is sustainable and effectively meets the balance between protecting and conserving the environment and the community’s infrastructure needs for one of the city’s premiere natural assets.

The overall project included widening a section of West Point Road, reconfiguration of the intersection of Hurst and Yule streets, a gatehouse, a 450sq metre building that houses the drop off facility, resource recovery and buy-back areas, a green waste collection area, security fencing, car parking and vehicle access points.

Mendi as a fully integrated civil construction company, self executed the civil works, including supply of products via Townsville Graded Sands. As a locally owned business, Mendi aimed for utilisation of local (Island) suppliers and subcontractors where possible throughout the project.
