Cessnock City Council is one step closer to delivering the community with a new and improved Waste Transfer Station as construction is well underway.

Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent said it is fantastic to see the project coming to life since construction began in January. 

“The waste services we provide our community have undergone significant upgrades in the last twelve months.”

“The roll out of the green organics services and the construction of this new modernised Waste Transfer Station are a reflection of our commitment to ensuring our community has a first rate service”.

“The redesign not only offers the community more resource recovery opportunities but also will deliver a facility which has increased safety, and convenience”, Cr Pynsent said.

Increased resource recovery opportunities are for a range of materials including metals, garden organics, electronic waste, paints, oils and batteries.

Since construction began works have included earthworks, retaining walls, slabs, stormwater and placement of road base.

Cessnock City Council thanks the community for their patience during the construction phase as interim measures are currently in place.

The new facility is expected to be completed in the new financial year. To keep up to date with construction please visit
