Shortlisted Companies Announced In The Search For Alternatives To Landfill
In March 2020 MWRRG called for Expressions of Interest for solutions to provide an alternative to landfill for 16 councils in Melbourne’s south east.
We’re pleased to announce that after a competitive tendering process three tenderers, including world leading providers of resource recovery infrastructure, have been shortlisted to join the solution development stage of the procurement:
- Veolia Environmental Services Australia
- Sacyr Environment Australia
- Pacific Partnerships and REMONDIS (A consortium comprised of Pacific Partnerships and REMONDIS Australia, together with CIMIC Group Companies CPB Contractors and UGL)
Landfills in the south east of Melbourne are filling up and no more are planned to be built. Household rubbish in the 16 councils is projected to increase by 40% over the next 25 years.
Veolia Environmental Services Australia, Sacyr Environment Australia and Pacific Partnerships and REMONDIS will work with the 16 councils to develop an advanced waste processing solution that delivers environmental, economic and social benefits to the community.
Best outcomes will be achieved by minimising our waste, reusing or recycling, and then what is left over can go to advanced waste processing.
Advanced waste processing will help the Victorian government deliver on its circular economy strategy – Recycling Victoria – a 10-year plan that will completely overhaul Victoria’s recycling sector and reduce waste going to landfill.
