The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure advise that Toll North Pty Ltd has been awarded the contract for the next phase of works in South Australia’s Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands Waste and Landfill Program.
Toll North Pty Ltd will undertake works in the APY Communities of Kanpi, Nyapari and Amata to remediate three landfill sites.
The contract is worth over $400,000 and due to commence mid-September.
The South Australian Government approved a Waste and Landfill Program in the APY Lands to close and rehabilitate old landfill sites as well as build new waste management sites where required.
This program covers landfills at 13 APY communities and will be delivered through a number of works packages over the coming years.
The government in consultation with the APY Executive Board has committed to ensuring a minimum 30 percent of the total onsite labour hours will be undertaken by local Anangu
The Yunyarinyi (Kenmore Park) landfill site upgrade, worth over $150,000, was recently awarded to the Regional Anangu Services Aboriginal Corporation, an Aboriginal owned and managed organisation on the APY Lands.
The APY Waste and Landfill Program also covers other aspects of waste management, including planning and implementing resource recovery initiatives for communities, and the design and implementation of educational strategies for waste disposal and recycling.
