Leading organics recycling company Peats Group have opened a fourth compost and renewable energy manufacturing site in Whyalla.
The $5.49 million facility will create 60 part-time jobs over the next 2 years and 12 full-time jobs into the future, offering new jobs to locals.
The facility is located at Whyalla City Council’s Mount Laura Waste and Resource Recovery Centre.
Peats was awarded one of nine Upper Spencer Gulf Region Grants for an Advanced Composting and Renewable Energy Facility.
Compost production has begun with plans for the renewable energy plant to be fully operational by June 2020.
