Waste facilities for fire ant carriers

Certain waste facilities within fire ant biosecurity zones in South East Queensland can accept fire ant carriers.

Below is a list of waste facility locations and the materials they will accept.

Contact the waste facility directly to discuss specific requirements and opening hours.

Please be advised that Biosecurity Queensland is not responsible for the materials individual waste facilities accept.

We recommend that you check with the operator for any pre-entry requirements.

Movement of fire ant carriers may be subject to other local government and state government regulations in addition to Queensland biosecurity regulations.
