Combining maggots and robotics in commercial waste reduction
One of RAMJO Murray Waste Group’s councils, AlburyCity, is combining maggots and robotic technology to manage commercially generated food waste.
As part of the fascinating project, a unit the size of a shipping container is being installed at the Albury Waste Management Centre to process and recycle packaged commercial food waste.
The product is mostly expired food packaging along with commercial food waste sourced from large food generators.
Innovative Sunset on Solar Project
The Sunset on Solar project aims to divert end of life solar panels from across southern NSW landfills for further processing.
RAMJO member councils – Murray River, Griffith, Hay, Federation, Berrigan, Leeton and AlburyCity – are involved in the project which will aim to recycle approximately 7,500 panels during its timeframe.

Australia is getting better at recycling, however NSW still generates almost 2.8 tonnes of solid waste per person each year (NSW Waste and Sustainable Material Strategy 2041). Do you know what happens to your rubbish?
