Recycling service is a winner
MAYOR Ron Bellingham has congratulated the Endeavour Foundation on upgrades to its commercial cardboard recycling system in Warwick.
Cr Bellingham said the council was the first to partner with Endeavour to pioneer the recycling service which has grown to be a very significant partnership between Endeavour and local governments across Queensland.
"The upgrade to the commercial cardboard and recycling service in Warwick is a significant investment by Endeavour that will help local businesses reduce the amount of waste subject to the new State Government waste levy," Cr Bellingham said.
He said council recently signed a $1.5 million four-year contract with Endeavour for continued management of waste transfer and recycling.
"In the last six years council has introduced kerbside recycling in Warwick and Stanthorpe, carried out million-dollar upgrades to waste facilities built new transfer stations at Allora and Killarney and will upgrade landfill operations at Stanthorpe and add recycling bins at most outer lying transfer stations."
