14 July: Landfill reopens to commercial waste and feasibility study starts on regional centre  Printer Friendly

The Benalla Landfill and Resource Recovery Centre reopened on 6 June to accept commercial waste and the Council has begun scoping a feasibility study to investigate the potential of the site becoming a shared service regional waste facility with the other eleven Councils in the North East region.

The Council has received $75,000 from the State Government to fund the investigation

The construction of a new 110,000m3 cell, the largest the Council has constructed to date, has been completed, and the landfill is once again receiving commercial waste deliveries from Benalla Rural City, Mansfield and Strathbogie shires.

The new cell has an expected life of three years and design work has already begun on the next cell.

Broadening the scale of the centre to take waste from across North East Victoria was in line with the State Government’s state-wide Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Plan, released in June last year and underpinned by the Regional Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plans of the seven regional waste management groups appointed by the State Government, said CEO Tony McIlroy.

“The site has potential for development, with ideal land conditions and an expected life of 40 years,” Mr McIlroy said.

“The feasibility study will examine economies of scale in waste streaming and disposal.

“This project is about finding the best way to manage waste and resource recovery across the region at a competitive price with the best environmental outcome.”

The feasibility study and business case is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
