Road to re­cov­ery

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THE Eastern Metropoli­tan Re­gional Coun­cil has re­leased its call for ten­ders for a new re­source re­cov­ery fa­cil­ity for the re­gion, in­clud­ing the City of Bel­mont.

The project re­ceived en­vi­ron­men­tal ap­proval in 2014 but the EMRC opted to put the project on hold while the lo­cal gov­ern­ment re­form process was un­der way.

Chair­man David Färdig said the EMRC was now ready to progress the project.

“Dur­ing the twoyear de­lay pe­riod, the mar­ket for al­ter­na­tive waste treat­ment ma­tured and, as a re­sult, dif­fer­ent con­tract mod­els are now emerg­ing” Cr Färdig said.

“The EMRC has broad­ened the scope of the ten­der to ac­com­mo­date these ad­vances and en­sure that all vi­able op­tions for the de­vel­op­ment of this fa­cil­ity are con­sid­ered through this ten­der process.”

Ad­di­tional con­tract mod­els be­ing con­sid­ered in­clude a waste ser­vices agree­ment where the fa­cil­ity would be owned and op­er­ated by a con­trac­tor and EMRC would be one of a num­ber of waste sup­pli­ers to the fa­cil­ity.
