Territory and Municipal Services have kicked off a consultation on making the Mugga Lane landfill larger:
The ACT Government is seeking community comment on a proposal to develop the next stage of landfill at the Mugga Lane Resource Management Centre. A series of displays and community information sessions will be held over the coming weeks.
“The ACT has one active landfill site for general and putrescible (organic) waste at Mugga Lane. It is estimated that the current landfill area can only accommodate another three years of waste generated by the ACT. As such, work is now underway to plan for the continuation of landfill at Mugga Lane,” Director, ACT NOWaste, Chris Ware, said.
“The ACT Government has commenced planning for the development of Mugga Stage 5 adjacent to the current landfill area. This new space will be around 37 hectares in size (or about half the size of the previous landfill areas) and is expected to service the ACT’s need for landfill until at least 2035.”
No Waste 2010 is obviously coming along swimmingly.
