Have your say on Greenmount Waste Management Facility upgrade design

Details Last Updated: Wednesday, 29 June 2022 11:36 Published: Wednesday, 29 June 2022 11:16 Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) is encouraging residents to offer their views on the concept design of an upgraded waste management facility at Greenmount.Community feedback on the new design is open to 5pm on Monday, July 25, 2022 via Council’s Your Say page.TRC Water and Waste Committee portfolio leader Cr Nancy Sommerfield said upgraded waste transfer facilities offered a cleaner, neater and tidier waste solution.“The Greenmount upgrade will see the construction of our Region’s second Tier Two waste management facility,” Cr Sommerfield said.“The new facility will be built on the site of the existing landfill and designed as a smaller version of the Region’s state-of-the-art flagship, the Greater Toowoomba Waste Management Facility.“Transfer facilities reduce the need for regional landfills, ensuring better environmental outcomes for the community.“The new design allows waste to be stored on hardstand pavement, and transported offsite, helping us to recover and reuse more of our waste products.“Council is working to transition in line with the State Government targets for 90% of our waste being reused and diverted from landfill by 2050.“We would like to hear our community’s comments and feedback about the new facility.“Make haste and don’t waste the opportunity to have your say on the new Greenmount Waste Management Facility.”Cr Sommerfield said Council was planning for the long-term management of waste through its Waste Infrastructure Plan.“Council has 23 waste management facilities across the Region, which is the highest number of any local government in Queensland.
