Completed projects

The MRC, in partnership with its seven member Councils, has received State Government funding from the Waste Authority to investigate improvements in waste management.  The results could lead to system improvements to divert more waste from landfill and recover more usable material from waste.

The funding has been made available under the Regional Funding Program and is used to support regional priorities identified within the region's Strategic Waste Management Plan.  The MRC, in partnership with its seven member Councils sought funding for six projects.
