Cherbourg Aboriginal Shire Council will receive just over $800,000 from the State Government to develop the next stage of its recycling centre.
Council will receive $807,365 towards the total cost of $827,365 under Round 5 of the Building Our Regions (BoR) program.
The grant will be used to improve efficiency at the Material Recovery Facility as well as assist with its long-term sustainability.
Works will include the installation of an auto-tie chamber baler to compact paper and cardboard, a weighbridge, a fitted compressor extraction system for fine particle removal and an onsite diesel tank.
The State Government has partnered with 39 local councils across Queensland to deliver projects through Round 5 of the BoR.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said BoR was an investment in the future of Queensland and would play an important part in the State’s COVID-19 recovery.
Round 5 focused on construction and planning projects that would create and sustain long-term employment.
