Colliers lists rare recycling facility development opportunity

Colliers International are offering a rare opportunity for waste and resource recovery facility operators to acquire a development consent approved recycling facility development site in Singleton, NSW.

Approval allows for the erection of the Singleton Recycling Facility, which once operational has the capacity to receive, sort and recycle up to 95,000 tonnes per annum of household, business and construction waste.

According to Colliers International, the property provides a unique opportunity to acquire an approved site to construct a recycling facility in an area with a priority need for more recycling services.

“The NSW Environment Protection Authority in their Waste and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Strategy has identified a shortfall of more than 460,000 tonnes of recycling capacity per year in the Hunter and Central Coast for building waste alone,” the company said.

“More recycling facilities are needed to cater for the growing population. After lengthy research, the subject property was identified as a logical location for a new facility.”

The property is located within the suburb of McDougalls Hill, situated five kilometres northwest of Singleton CBD and 203 kilometres north of the Sydney CBD by road.

Singleton is strategically located at the junction of a number of major thoroughfares including the New England Highway and Gresford Road, linking Singleton to the wider Hunter Region of NSW.

The Hunter Region offers steadily growing employment and investment opportunities across the region, as well as a high-quality lifestyle. It is predicted that the Hunter will become home to a population of one million people within the next thirty years.

The proposed building is to comprise a two-storey office with an adjoining high clearance processing warehouse, with a proposed total gross lettable area of 2838 square metres.

The property benefits from development consent to construct a waste or resource recovery transfer station including crushing and screening activities.

Special features of the approved facility include two vehicle weighbridges, wheel wash bay, basement parking for 19 vehicles and a fire sprinkler system.

A wide range of waste materials have been approved for recycling under the development consent, including building and demolition, hazardous, bulk and household waste.

Expressions of interest close 10 December at 4pm. For more information contact Colliers International Industrial Senior Executives Tim Woolf or Jayson Robertson.
