Construction update – equipment installed on the AWCS Collection Centre

24th February, 2020

Kane Queensland’s Sunshine Coast team has celebrated the install of critical plant and equipment on the Automated Waste Collection Station (AWCS) in Maroochydore. This marks a key milestone for the project, enabling critical path roof works to commence.

The ground breaking facility is the first of its kind to be constructed in Australia. AWCS will transport waste from a series of public realm inlets located throughout the Maroochydore City Centre via a network of heavy duty steel pipes to the Automated Waste Collection Station.

Waste will travel at speeds of up to 70kmph through a 6.5km system of underground vacuum pipes.

Works on the new facility will be completed in the coming months.
