To be determined

Maitland Resource Recovery Facility (MRRF) is undergoing a major transformation and forging ahead with a renewed focus on resource recovery and circular economy.

Split across four stages, completion of the revamped MRRF will result in infrastructure that provides the growing Maitland community access to a modern waste management facility in Maitland for the long term.

It will increase our capability for recycling and resource recovery, with flexible spaces that can accommodate different automatic sorting equipment based on the availability of markets for resource streams. A community education facility and circular economy hub are also being considered, giving Council the opportunity to showcase circular economy practises and educate the community on sustainability principles.
