Albury Waste Management Centre
Stage 3 Construction – Push Pit and Weighbridge
The recently constructed push pit and weighbridge will open on 21 November 2017 and will cater for cars and trailers bringing in general waste.
A push pit allows multiple cars and trailers to reverse and remove any general waste into a large concrete base. This is then pushed to one end by a loader machine and lifted into a bin for transferring to the landfill area.
This project will significantly improve the Work Health and Safety functions of the site by separating large and small vehicles, improving the traffic flow, removing potential flammable or hazardous products prior to disposal, minimise exposure for the public to large plant and equipment and provide additional opportunities for product recovery and recycling.
