Status: Operational/winding down/community consultation
This site started life as a quarry in the 1920s and subsequently became a landfill site in 1994. We took ownership of the landfill operations in 2007 and have since begun a process of continual improvement to ensure the site meets the standards that we expect of our facilities. The landfill is scheduled to close in 2016/17. At this time, we will commence rehabilitation works on the site in accordance with its approved conditions.
With the landfill closing, a new, practical solution to managing waste in Sydney’s western suburbs is required. Cleanaway is currently seeking approval to build a Resource Management Facility adjacent to the existing landfill site. If approved, the site will be developed in two stages: the first being a Waste Transfer Station and the second being a Resource Recovery Facility. A Waste Transfer station is a specifically designed facility that accepts and sorts waste for processing. A Resource Recovery Facility separates various fractions of recyclable material from an unsorted waste stream, and directs the separated product streams to dedicated facilities where they are further processed into products for beneficial reuse.

Environmental Impact Statement
Our first and foremost consideration is the safety of the people, communities and environments in which we operate.
We are committed to working with our neighbours to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved for all.
An Environmental Impact Assessment of the key environmental issues identified by the Department of Planning has been undertaken and has been reported through a publicly available Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Transfer Station. The EIS will be on Exhibition from 4 November to 4 December 2015.
You can download a copy of the EIS from the DP&E website at the following link: Erskine Park Resource Management Facility – Stage 1 EIS
We have been keeping the community well informed about the proposed improvements to the Erskine Park site for some time and continue to do so.
