A $7.5 million contract to deliver best practice infrastructure at Darwin’s Shoal Bay Waste Management Facility (SCWMF) has been awarded to local business DTA Contractors.
SBWMF is the only licensed landfill in the Darwin area and services both domestic and commercial customers.
SBWMF is currently comprised of a lined putrescible waste landfill, an inert landfill and recycling and mulch facilities.
According to City of Darwin CEO Scott Waters, DTA Contractors will build an additional land fill cell, with work expected to begin at the end of the July.
“The advantage of using local businesses for our program of works is they understand the environment in which we live and work,” Mr Waters said.
DTA Managing Director David Divilly said the company look forward to working collaboratively with the City of Darwin to deliver the project.
“Our extensive local experience ensures we understand the importance of utilising local businesses to deliver the highest possible standard for this important local infrastructure project,” Mr Divilly said.
