Deniliquin Council plans to build a $600,000 recycling centre, with construction proposed to begin next year.
Director of technical services Mark Dalzell said the Resource Recovery Centre would be built at the entry of the Deniliquin Waste Disposal Depot off Hay Rd.
The covered shed with a concrete floor would be at least 10m by 26m, and is expected to make dropping-off recyclables easier and more efficient for the public.
The centre would be divided into separate parts for different recycling material and is expected to have easy undercover access to bins.
‘‘It would deal with problem recyclables such as paint, oil and gas bottles,’’ Mr Dalzell said.
‘‘We’re also looking at adding recycling for normal things such as paper, glass and so on.
‘‘At the moment people can do all this but it’s all over the place .
‘‘We want to have a complete re-model of our waste system and make it easier for the public to use.
‘‘We have tender briefs out at the moment .
Council recently received a $200,000 grant from the NSW Environmental Trust’s Community Recycling Centre Grant Program and has allocated $400,000 to the centre from its own budget.
The objective of the government’s program is to encourage an increase in community recycling and therefore a reduction in the amount of waste sent to landfill.
Mr Dalzell said council was ‘‘very happy’’ to receive funding for the centre, which he says has been on council’s agenda for ‘‘quite some time’’.
Mr Dalzell said the project would not include the reintroduction of kerbside recycling at this stage.
The design of the resource centre will include processing of kerbside recycling in case the service does become feasible in the future.
‘‘What we want to do is include the ability for kerbside recycling in the centre so that we can have that option,’’ he said.
Council’s recycling program includes community education requirements as well as liaison with adjoining councils.
