Highlights

By 2046 Victoria is forecast to send an estimated 5.9 million tonnes of waste to landfill each year. That’s enough to fill almost 5,000 Olympic size swimming pools every year! Cleanaway is investing in developing a sustainable alternative to landfill to manage residual waste.

Cleanaway is proposing to build a waste-to-energy facility in Victoria, named the Melbourne Energy and Resource Centre (MERC). It will use safe, proven technology that has been successfully used for decades in cities across Europe (almost 500 plants in operation), North America, Japan and many other developed countries.

Whilst the technical assessments are still underway, Cleanaway is committed to engage with the local community early and seek their feedback on the proposal.
