Resource Recovery Centres

Another proposal that received wide support from the community was establishing Resource Recovery Centres in Matamata (2023/24) and Morrinsville. We’ve started on the ground work for these resource recovery centres, including early engagement with local interest groups, which will influence the scope and design of the facilities.

In the meantime, we’ve also made improvements to all three Transfer stations – this included new weigh bridge systems (hardware and software) to collect better information about what waste our district is creating, as well as what is being recovered. All councils are being required to provide detailed reports on this back to Central Government from April 2022. The data we collect through this reporting will also help with planning for our Resource Recovery Centres.
