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

Our contract for the subgrade excavation and engineered fill construction work comprised:

  • Load, haul & stockpile existing recycled concrete material (55,000SCM)
  • Clearing, topsoil stripping and environmental protection to stockpiling areas
  • Drill & blast, load, haul and stockpile all rock material (740,000BCM)
  • Preparation of subgrade levels for future landfill cell construction
  • Construction of access ramps for the future landfill facility
