Automated waste collection at the heart of Maroochydore’s new CBD

Automated vacuum waste collection system to collect and transport waste.

A 53 HECTARE greenfield site in Maroochydore on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast is being transformed into a Central Business District for the 21st century, with smart technology being employed to create a clean, green, dynamic city.
