wastetNote:  Botany Bay Council is a signatory along with  Kogarah, Rockdale, Waverley and Woollahra.   Garbage trucks from these councils will be heading to Beauchamp Road in morning peak. Other developments in the area coming up include Orica subdivision; Orica 18ha at Southlands, British American Tobacco, proposed Bunnings, along with an every growing Port.

Previous post.     Details on Veolia development with Planning.   EIS Exhibition closes 28th May.   Check the Traffic impacts.  Each day – 430 trucks with putresible waste + 280 with non-putresible waste + 32 trucks for bulk haulage.  That’s over 800 trucks to begin with then additions if other Councils come on board.  Randwick is noted as a client on page 29 of the Traffic Study even though they are not mentioned in the article below.  Also note that it is estimated that 80% of the traffic will come from the West(p.29).  So we will have by far the majority of this garbage trucked to the east – competing for space on heavily congested roads in the Port and Airport precinct – and then it will be put on the train to be railed west.  Ever wondered why Sydney Roads are congested!


NOTE:  Reference below in the Burwood Scene to Bankstown Meadow.  This is indicative of the general level of knowledge about Banksmeadow, home to more of the State’s Major Hazard Facilities than any other suburb.  Recent incident at one facility (not even ranked as an MHF) had potential to close the whole area – see link.

Councils buddy up for garbage

October 15, 2013  Posted by Editor, Burwood Scene

A new waste terminal at Bankstown Meadow will be built following an agreement signed today between eight councils from the Southern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (SSROC) with Veolia for a long-term contract for the treatment of household waste across their local government areas.  

councils-buddy-upThe SSROC contract with Veolia under the Advanced Waste Management project is expected to to keep tens of thousands of tonnes of waste away from landfill every year and deliver a 60% reduction in waste to landfill across Greater Southern Sydney, thus meeting the State Government target of a 66% reduction in waste diversion from landfill.

Burwood, Ashfield, Botany Bay, Kogarah, Leichhardt, Rockdale, Waverley and Woollahra councils, representing more than 450,000 residents, will send more than 100,000 tonnes of waste from landfill to advanced waste management facilities, where more than 67,000 tonnes of recyclable material and compost can be recovered.  The initiative is expected to show a reduction in the waste levy, carbon liability and ongoing landfill management costs, saving several million dollars in the first year.

Eight councils sign Advanced Waste Management agreement

President of SSROC and Burwood Mayor, John Faker thanked the participating councils.

“SSROC has been working with Veolia to deliver a cost effective and environmentally sustainable alternative to landfill,” John Faker said.

“I would like to thank all those who have worked on this project over the past three years, in particular the staff of SSROC and participating Councils and also the Councillors of the eight councils who have supported this important initiative. It has been a tremendous effort to get to where we are today as it has been a very complex and involved process.

“This is a momentous occasion for NSW that also demonstrates how councils can work together to improve the efficiencies and effectiveness of council services, building upon the many other successful SSROC projects over recent years.”

In a pointed remark regarding council amalgamation, Mayor Faker defended the efficiencies councils are able to achieve if they work together.

“I hope the final report of the Independent Review Panel recognises the important role that regional organisations of councils play in local government in NSW and provides the necessary mechanisms to facilitate even greater achievements,” he said.

“Waste management is an important part of a growing Sydney’s future, and today’s agreement shows that we are heading in the right direction.”

Councils will still have to pay for waste disposal, but the waste levy and carbon liability and ongoing landfill management costs will be much less. SSROC estimates that several millions of dollars will be saved in levies in the first year, which will increase each year as the waste levy rises.

A new waste transfer terminal will be built in Banksmeadow to receive the household waste from five of the participating Councils: Botany Bay, Rockdale, Woollahra, Waverley and Kogarah.

The new terminal will have capacity to receive more waste, enabling other Councils, government agencies and commercial collectors to enter into similar agreements and further reduce waste going to landfill. The other three participating Councils: Ashfield, Burwood and Leichhardt will utilise the existing Clyde Transfer Terminal.

These two facilities will receive approximately 120,000 tonnes per annum of household waste from this contract, which will be transferred by rail within 24 hours to Veolia’s Woodlawn facility, near Goulburn, for treatment, recycling or energy recovery using innovative technology.

Veolia group general manager NSW Danny Conlon outlined the operation of the new Banksmeadow site.

“The proposed Banksmeadow facility will act as a feeder site, much like the Clyde Transfer Terminal in Auburn, to divert waste away from landfill from the Southern Sydney Region,” Mr Conlon advised.

“The waste will be transferred by rail 250km south for treatment and recycling at our new Woodlawn Mechanical Biological Treatment facility where it will separate organics from household waste to create compost used to rehabilitate the Woodlawn mine site.

“Once completed, the two new facilities, in conjunction with the existing Clyde facility, will provide much needed, affordable and sustainable waste management solution and help advance environmentally sustainable resource recovery for NSW.

“These facilities will be significant pieces of state infrastructure that are consistent with government’s policy of using the freight rail network for transport and the facilitation of greater resource recovery.

“They will also provide choice and competition for waste recovery in the region and deliver a much needed innovative and sustainable solution, adaptable to local government and commercial demands now and into the future.

Independent consultant, Hyder Consulting is is currently undertaking the  Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on the Banksmeadow facility, which will due by the end of the year for submission the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure (DP&I) before going on public exhibition.

If approved, the Banksmeadow terminal will result in an estimated 40 new jobs for the area and 35 new jobs for Woodlawn. Both facilities are expected to be fully operational by early 2016.
