Upgrade at Cherbourg MRF

During June, the RDT Engineering team completed an upgrade to the Cherbourg Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), in the Wide Bay-Burnett region of Queensland. A three-man team successfully installed an education walkway structure to ensure safe viewing of MRF operations by visiting community groups and dignitaries.

The new education platform runs past the container sorting station down to the ballistics separator, providing touring groups with an up-close view of container and paper separation processes. From the elevated vantage provided by the platform, visitors can also see the pre-sort station and baling operation.

The Cherbourg MRF is building a local recycling industry and delivering all the environmental benefits. The MRF also plays a vital role in helping build the local community. The MRF and recycling centre provides meaningful employment for 26 people – a major source of jobs in a town of 1,600 residents.

There’s future work planned at Cherbourg MRF, including a baler upgrade, and a glass plant. RDT Engineering is proud to work with council partner, Cherbourg Aboriginal Shire Council, who continue to show passion and drive in demonstrating the wider benefits that local recycling can deliver to local communities.
