Yarriambiack Ramps Up Regional Recycling
With the State Government last week announcing a major recycling boost to regional and rural Victoria through the second round of the Resource Recovery Infrastructure Fund, $4.2 million is now making 13 projects happen for local councils and businesses.
The projects are expected to create 50 jobs and divert around 85,000 tonnes of waste from landfill each year.
Eight of the 13 projects are being delivered by local councils and include new or upgraded council resource recovery centres in the rural cities of Benalla and Wangaratta, and the Campaspe, Mitchell, Moira, Toowong and Yarriambiack Shires.
To find out what the Yarriambiack Shire has planned, Sarah spoke to Mayor Graeme Massey on the Regional Roundup.
Applications for the third round of the Resource Recovery Infrastructure Fund have also opened.
Up to $3 million is available for infrastructure projects across Victoria, with grants of between $40,000 and $500,000 available.
