This CRS centre would be designed to have capacity for the ACT and the surrounding region’s waste. There is some provision in the design of the centre for growth, should the ACT’s population and corresponding waste generation continue to grow. These types of facilities are a function of population, waste management policy and other factors.

We do not believe the proposal would have any negative impact on a similar proposal in NSW and note that countries such as Switzerland have over 30 of these types of facilities in operation.
