SUEZ Eastern Creek Resource Recovery Park

Eastern Creek Resource Recovery Park in Sydney’s west is home to two innovative waste processing facilities: an ORRF, diverting organics from landfill and converting them into valuable resources for healthy plant growth; and an ARRT, which uses advanced specialist technologies to recover and recycle more from waste. Together, these facilities lead the change from traditional waste disposal to economically sustainable resource recovery solutions.

Eastern Creek ARRT Facility

Unlike traditional waste disposal methods, such as conventional and bioreactor landfills and incineration, SUEZ’s ARRT facilities employ advanced technologies to separate and compost organic materials and extract recyclables from garbage collected by local councils.

Eastern Creek ARRT opened in 2004 and is owned and operated by Global Renewables. The facility currently processes 220,000 tonnes of waste per annum, diverting it from landfill and recovering and returning valuable resources to the economy.

Environment and Safety

At SUEZ, we take our responsibility to the safety of people and the environment seriously.

All visitors to SUEZ facilities must observe site safety requirements, including wearing enclosed footwear at all times.


SUEZ Environment Report Hotline

SUEZ has a dedicated Environment Report Hotline for anyone living, or working, near one of our facilities in New South Wales, Victoria or Western Australia.

The hotline has been set up to receive feedback on environmental matters which are sometimes associated with recycling and waste management facilities – like odours, noise, dust and mud tracking.

This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your call will always be answered by a real person - not just an automated message - who will enter your feedback and forward it immediately to the staff at the facility. This allows us to take immediate action to determine the cause of any concerns you may have, and gives us the best chance of rectifying the situation quickly.

A SUEZ employee will endeavour to contact you within 24 hours with feedback on your report.


To provide your feedback, please call:

NSW/VIC/WA - 1800 ENV REP (1800 368 737)
