Katherine Town Council are absolutely thrilled to be chosen to receive the biggest, single investment in recycling infrastructure, in the Northern Territory.

Council recognises that here in Katherine we are best placed both geographically and as an emerging town, to address recycling opportunities across the Big Rivers Region.

“We are grateful that both the Federal Government and the NT Government have been able to recognise that too” said Mayor Clark.

Minister Lawler’s announcement of $7.2 million funding for a Materials Recovery Facility here in Katherine will mean a great deal of new opportunities for our town.

There are a lot of elements to consider along the way in preparation, and the NT Government have said a feasibility study will need to be undertaken.

Katherine Town Council is looking forward to continuing to be a significant partner in this process.

The most important thing is Council is ready for the challenge and will continue to be heavily involved and supported by both the Commonwealth and NT Governments in developing the new Materials Recovery Facility here in Katherine.
