The facility boasts a large education room offering a birds-eye view tour of the recycling operations.

Opened in 2013, the materials recovery facility is responsible for processing all the recyclables from the MidCoast Council local government area.

Using state-of-the-art technology, the materials recovery facility processes an average of 40 tonnes of recycling each day.

That’s about 1,250 tonnes per month or 14,000 tonnes per year.

“Being conscious of our waste and recycling habits is becoming increasingly important,” explained David Rees, waste services manager at MidCoast Council.

“More than ever, it’s important to put the right thing in the right bin to reduce the impact of waste on the environment,” he said.

“Sending waste to landfill should be our last resort.”

“(Council has) set an ambitious target to divert 70 per cent of waste from landfill by 2030, said Mr Rees.

“We need your help to meet this goal and to value waste as a resource that can be recycled, reused and reduced.”

Tours of the materials recovery facility are by appointment only.
