Automated Waste Collection System (AWCS) for Maroochydore City Centre
The Sunshine Coast is leading the nation with Australia’s first, high-tech, underground automated waste collection system for a CBD. Using a series of underground pipes, waste and recycling is moved by vacuum pressure to a collection station, alleviating the need for waste collection trucks.
Commissioning is underway for this sustainable and innovative technology, and the AWCS is expected to be operational mid-year.
