Advanced Recycling Technology coming to the Shoalhaven
The Shoalhaven is running out of space. Within 12 years our West Nowra landfill facility will reach capacity.
As a result, Shoalhaven City Council has undergone an extensive process of consulting with industry experts to find an economically and environmentally sound solution to a waste problem that faces local governments across Australia.
The Resource Recovery Facility (RRF) will be constructed on Council owned land, adjacent to the current West Nowra landfill site. Works will commence in 2019 with the facility expected to be fully operational late 2021.
The RRF will be a giant leap forward for how Shoalhaven manages waste that would normally end up in landfill. The additional good news is there will be no increase in costs for ratepayers and no changes to your kerbside collection.
