    Installation of a waste collection system.

    On 21st September 2016, the Sunshine Coast Council revealed that Envac is to install an automated waste collection system as part of the new 53-hectare Maroochydore commercial business district (CBD) in Queensland.

    The system will be installed in stages over the coming decade, transporting waste from commercial buildings and apartments at up to 70 kilometres per hour through a 6.5 kilometre system of underground vacuum pipes.

    The system will use three waste inlets for organic, recyclable and general waste. Waste dropped into each inlet will be stored in a sealed compartment below ground until the vacuum pump is activated at the central waste facility, usually twice each day.

    The system will cost A$21 million; half of the cost will be funded by the developer, SunCentral Maroochydore, with the balance recovered from residents over the life of the system.

    On 21st February 2017, the Brisbane Times reported that the first pipes have arrived on-site in readiness for installation works to begin. The remaining piping was due to arrive in March.

    On 10th April 2017, the Sunshine Coast Daily reported that the first stage of civil works on the new CBD is about to begin and will take about a year to complete. The installation of underground services and technology are included in the first stage.

    In June 2017, the first stage of the installation of the underground pipes for the automated waste collection system began.

    In April 2018, the Sunshine Coast Daily reported that the pipes for Stage 1A of the automated waste collection system had arrived in Maroochydore. Construction work on Stage 1A is due to start in May and is scheduled for completion in September.

    In May 2018, a spokesperson for Envac advised AcuComm that the automated waste collection system installation has been delayed due to a delay in the total development plan progress. The preliminary completion date is now expected to be towards the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020.
