Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council has awarded the Operation and Management of the Cootamundra Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and Wallendbeen and Stockinbingal Landfills to Cootamundra’s Elouera Association.
Council has been in negotiation with Elouera since Council’s meeting of 26 May 2020. The contract is for a period of five years with an addition five year option at Council’s discretion. Council has recently undertaken an extensive review of the entire waste operation and existing materials recovery facility.
CGRC mayor Cr Abb McAlister said he was pleased a local entity would be continuing with supplying Council with these services.
“This is a win win situation for all, I’m pleased that Elouera will continue to offer employment for people with disabilities and we have been able to support a local enterprise,”
“This is a good outcome for ratepayers and the community as a whole,” Cr McAlister added.
