Eastern Creek. Landfill capacity extended

The Planning Department’s deputy director-general, Richard Pearson, has approved the modification for the Eastern Creek waste and recycling centre, which was sought by WSN Environmental solutions. The upgrade will provide additional and extended landfill capacity for Sydney, helping to meet existing demand and reduce cross-regional truck movements. The works will increase the site’s total landfill capacity from 2.9 million to 4.5 million tonnes. The changes will also see the waste disposal rate of 500,000 tonnes per annum, raised to 550,000 until June 30, 2017. The landfill cessation date will also be extended from 2014 to June 2017.
