As part of Stage 1 development to reinvigorate the Chullora Resource Recovery Park, SUEZ plans to develop a Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) to ensure we have the infrastructure required to respond to the global recycling crisis.
Key features of the proposal:
1. Investment in a $40 million state-of-the-art Materials Recycling Facility to recover and process recyclables to a quality suitable for reuse in new products
2. Increasing the capacity and resilience of the recycling network in Sydney by adding 172,000 tonnes per annum of material recovery capability
3. Implementing principles of a Circular Economy
4. No identified significant negative impacts to the environment or the community
SUEZ’s Materials Recycling Facilities (MRF’s) use the latest in technology to maximise the recovery of recyclables from waste. MRF’s are like giant factories where the recyclable materials collected from homes and business are taken to be sorted into different types, or ‘streams’. The separated waste products are then transported to manufacturers for reprocessing into new products: everything from packaging and paper products through to road base, outdoor furniture, bike parts and appliances.
We are currently undertaking a comprehensive environmental impact assessment. SUEZ is committed to engaging and consulting extensively with the community throughout this process.
The indicative timeline below outlines key phases that will guide the process:
