Overview

Summary

A new Resource Recovery Centre is being built at the Killaloe Transfer Station. The new shed is a multi-purpose facility for domestic and commercial waste disposal whilst housing an undercover area for the transfer station operations team to sort and salvage. This project will result in much less rubbish going to landfill.
