Haye Shire Council will receive financial assistance to build a new recycling plant, Environment Minister Susan Lei announced this week. The council will receive just over $ 900,000 and government funding to go on to create a brand new “Standard for the Restoration of Hay Materials” serving the Hay, Balranald, Edward River, Marrambidji and Carrathhall areas. The money is part of a joint venture between the Commonwealth and New South Wales governments that is providing more than $ 20 million in grants for 19 new recycling infrastructure projects. “As in many regional areas of Australia, all of Hay’s collection on the curbs along with most of the other waste goes to landfill,” Ms. Leigh said. “This is a plant that will process 6,400 tons of waste each year, creating jobs during construction and operation.” The facility will house a sorter, crusher, shredder and baler for recycling materials from ordinary plastic and glass to tires and waste. The money comes from the Waste Management Modernization Fund, an effort by the Commonwealth government to prepare for a total ban on waste disposal, which will be introduced in 2024. If the ban goes into effect, Australia will need to recycle an additional 645,000 tonnes of plastic waste. , paper, glass and tires each year, which means that the Hay plant at maximum capacity will fill about one percent of the required additional recycling capacity. IN OTHER NEWS: Ms. Leigh has promised further announcements in the future. Hay-Shir Council Mayor Carol Oataway said the project had just begun. “I think it will be up to us in the council – we will have to wait until it all happens. We have just received a message about grant funding, it has just been published,” she said. She added that she is very positive about the development, and said it is “excellent”. The Commonwealth Government hopes that the Waste Management Modernization Fund and other measures from Australia’s National Action Plan on Waste Policy will haul more than 10 million tonnes of waste that would otherwise go straight to landfills.
