Works are set to begin on the $7.16 million Moranbah Resource Recovery Centre Expansion and Improvement Project Starting in September 2016, the project is expected to be complete by October 2017.
The project will deliver a new landfill cell, storm-water and leachate ponds, and provide a modern refuse transfer station.
The refuse transfer station will enable bulk handling of waste and improve hygiene and safety for the community, users of the landfill, and employees. It will improve operational efficiencies and extend the existing landfill’s lifespan.
Council will keep the community informed during each stage of the project from construction until completion.
This project will meet community and industry requirements for the next two decades and improve the efficiency and recovery of recyclable materials. The upgrade will provide Isaac residents with a purpose built refuse transfer station.
This project is critical in ensuring Moranbah can meet demand for the provision of waste infrastructure to serve the regional community, mining sector and supporting industries.
Isaac Regional Council has matched the Queensland Government’s $3.58 million grant under the Building our Regions program.
Building our Regions provides funding for critical infrastructure in regional areas, while also supporting jobs, fostering economic development and improving the liveability of regional communities.
