Construction of the new Waste Transfer Station at the Cessnock Waste Management Centre is well underway with it on track to be operational early in the new financial year.

Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent said residents who have been on site during the last few months would have noticed the progress.

“Construction is past the half way point with all earthworks complete, stormwater infrastructure in place, road pavements nearing completion and all major structural elements erected”.

Cessnock City Council’s Manager of Environment and Waste Michael Alexander said he is pleased to see a lot of community interest around the building of the new facility.

“This is a very important upgrade that will see our community have access to a modern, safer and more convenient service”. 

“We thank our customers for their patience during the upgrade and very much look forward to opening up in a few months”, Mr Alexander said.

Minor interruptions to normal services may be experienced over the weekend of 3 of June 2017 as upgrades around the existing weigh bridge are carried out.  

Residents may experience some delays and queuing. Cessnock City Council thanks the community for their patience during the construction phase.
