How is the NSW EPA’s decision to ban mixed waste organics affecting the industry months on? Waste Management Review investigates.
SUEZ has been awarded Sydney’s Northern Beaches Council recycling and resource recovery contract run by Kimbriki.
The new contract will commence on 1 July 2019 and is valued at approximately $199 million over 10 years.
The Northern Beaches Council’s Mixed Solid Waste (red-bin) will firstly be delivered to Belrose Transfer Station and then sent to be processed at the Eastern Creek Advanced Resource Recovery Facility, owned and operated by Global Renewables under an exclusivity waste processing contract with SUEZ. The facility diverts household waste from landfill recovering recyclable materials and turning the organic fraction of the waste into compost.
“Our partnership with Northern Beaches Council will increase the recovery, reuse and recycling of resources and ultimately reduce the volume of waste disposed at landfill,” said Mark Venhoek, CEO of SUEZ Australia and New Zealand.
“We know that Northern Beaches’ residents care about their impact on the environment. We look forward to helping council meet its 70 per cent waste diversion target” Mr Venhoek said.
Kimbriki is a local waste management and resource recovery company owned by the Northern Beaches Council and Mosman Council.
SUEZ provides resource solutions to collect, recover and recycle waste into valuable new products and resources. In Australia, SUEZ collects 2.2 million tonnes of waste every year and diverts more than 1.2 million tonnes of waste from landfill.
