An innovative Resource Recovery Centre has won the Capital Project Award for the Wellington Shire Council at the Annual Public Works Engineering Excellence Awards held by the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia, Victoria Division.  The new Kilmany Resource Recovery Facility is already generating greater than 40% recovery of waste disposed at the facility having significant environmental and financial benefits for the residents of Wellington Shire.  A key feature is the “walking floor” component, a slow moving variable rate steel conveyor allowing for detailed sorting and removal from the waste stream of material prior to the residual waste being transported via skip bins to the landfill.  The project has sparked interest in using these engineering concepts in other regional centres.
