This project will upgrade the Kowanyama landfill to a standard that will allow waste to be buried and recoverable recyclable materials to be removed prior to entering the landfill. Specifically, the project will provide a stockpile of earth for use at the Kowanyama Tip, and construct a shed to be used in separating recyclable items. This will help provide the community with health and environmental benefits, including a reduction in the volume of landfill through increased recycling.
