  • Q. Why has Kimbriki changed to a Resource Recovery Centre and what does this mean?

    A. Kimbriki’s change into a Resource Recovery Centre highlights the importance of recovering resources from waste rather than disposal in landfill as the primary disposal method. Kimbriki already recycles approximately 80% of waste that is brought onto site. In coming years KEE are planning to introduce other technologies to further enhance resource recovery for the northern beaches region.
