Better practice at resource recovery centres benefits owners, operators and other stakeholders through:

  • improved environmental performance
  • more resources diverted from landfill
  • less risk of community complaints
  • reduced environmental risk
  • improved occupational health and safety
  • improved operational efficiencies
  • a more sustainable long-term business model
  • assistance when applying for funding or grants
  • improving a facility’s overall cost structure
  • helping to mitigate against future changes in site design and operations if required by changes to licensing requirements.
