The other portion has gone towards the Southern Landfill to be used for construction and maintenance work such as roads and access tracks. Some of the rocks have been used to supply different projects around the region, such as construction and maintenance at other landfills, and for the Silverstream pipe bridge project.
The new facility, expected to be finished in 2026, is a crucial investment for our community, designed to meet waste sludge minimisation and carbon emissions goals, thereby creating a healthier environment for us all.
The new product will be much easier to transport, and we won’t need to pipe raw sludge 9km through the city to Southern Landfill to be partially dried and buried in waste anymore.
In July 2024, a levy will be introduced to ratepayers as part of a financing initiative to support the construction of our new Moa Point sludge minimisation facility.
