Bayside City Council’s transfer station, the Bayside Waste and Recycling Centre provides a valuable and much-needed service to the Bayside and neighbouring communities. The Centre offers a variety of waste and resource recovery services for both residents and commercial businesses.
However, with rapid innovation currently taking place within the waste and recycling sector and the transition towards a circular economy, there is a significant opportunity to expand and improve the services available at the site.
As part of Bayside’s commitment to transitioning to a circular economy, Council is looking at increasing resource recovery at the facility as well as improving the overall customer experience.
The current site lease is ending in August 2023, creating an exciting opportunity to expand the service offering and reinvigorate the site.
