How are we doing it?

Resource recovery and/or waste disposal services

The sub-regional alliance advertised an expression of interest process led by Logan City Council. The call for expressions of interest was advertised as follows:

  • LG Tender Box (Saturday 25 May 2019)
  • The Courier Mail (Saturday 25 May 2019)
  • The Australian (Saturday 25 May 2019)
  • The Albert News (Thursday 30 May 2019)
  • Jimboomba Times (Wednesday 29 May 2019)
  • QLD Times (Saturday 25 May 2019)
  • Redland City Bulletin (Wednesday 29 May 2019)
  • The Gatton Star (Wednesday 29 May 2019)
  • The Somerset (Wednesday 29 May 2019)
  • Kilcoy Sentinel (Thursday 30 May 2019)
  • Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia member email (Monday 27 May 2019)

The expression of interest process seeks to determine the best services – for the sub-regional alliance, for a smaller group of councils or for individual councils. There are no preconceived ideas about what the services will look like or where they may be located.

Examples of the types of services that may be offered during the Expression of Interest process includes (but is not limited to):

  • Sorting and separation processes (e.g. material recovery facilities);
  • Beneficial reuse / upcycling;
  • Recycling/remanufacturing;
  • Recovery of waste materials (thermal and biological treatment);
  • Landfill.

Future procurement stages will require that project proponents demonstrate consideration of Council planning scheme requirements and all various regulatory approvals including  social licence to operate through stakeholder and community engagement appropriate to the type of service being sought or offered. In particular, any Energy from Waste proposal must meet the Queensland Government’s Energy for Waste Policy.
