Recycling and Collections - The Material Recovery Facility is owned by Bundaberg Regional Council, but managed by IMPACT Community Services. All of the waste from council's yellow-top bins is sorted at the facility on University Drive. IMPACT employs about 27 workers with disabilities under the Australian Government's Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE) for the task.
A supportive work environment is provided where workers can reach their potential in this field of work. The facility has a motivated and happy workforce; some have been with IMPACT for more than 30 years. Each week the facility processes about 38 council kerbside truck loads of recycling. This equals about 130 tonnes of recyclable waste. The content is hand sorted, baled and sold to be made into new products. We also process commercial recycling which is about 40 tonnes per week.
