FLASHBACK: Percy Murray and Aileen Blair show Cherbourg “Ministerial Champion” Dr Anthony Lynham how it’s done on the sorting line in the Materials Recovery Facility

May 20, 2020

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.

    Great news….. I am all for recycling. Hopefully, the Kingaroy facility will also get a windfall so that it can accept all the recyclable materials that Cherbourg can handle. This would be of great benefit to the lower/Eastern part of the shire and Kingaroy residents and businesses.
