Cosgrove 3 Landfill
project overview

The Greater Shepparton City Council had been planning the development of the Cosgrove 3 Landfill within an existing unused quarry for a number of years. An integral part of the development was the need to excise the area for the landfill from the quarry area to allow a transition into a modern landfill site.

Ertech completed two projects for the Council; the first contract for $8.2M in 2017 was to undertake all site preparation, clearing and earthworks for the facility. The second contract for $4.5M was awarded in 2019 to complete construction of infrastructure including roads, a weighbridge and other associated infrastructure.
