Improving recycling for South West Sydney
BINGO’s new Mortdale Recycling Centre was officially opened by BINGO Chairman Michael Coleman, Director Barry Buffier and Managing Director & CEO Daniel Tartak.
“This is an exciting milestone for our larger Sydney network redevelopment and our Mortdale facility has been designed to play an important transfer and collections role within this network.” Mr Tartak said.
Located in proximity to major transport routes the M5 Motorway and King Georges Road, the new Mortdale centre provides a convenient tipping location for South West Sydney’s construction waste with a license to collect 220,000 tonnes per year.
“Our new Mortdale facility is a great example of what investment in recycling infrastructure can achieve, even at a smaller site. What was once an outdated waste facility, is now leading the way in terms of fire protection, traffic flow efficiency and site safety,” Mr Tartak said.
“Space is at a premium at this site. To ensure we get our customers in and out as quickly as possible, we’ve installed four split weighbridges, meaning we can have trucks weighing in and out at the same time,” he said.
Materials tipped at BINGO’s Mortdale facility will be sorted and crushed through the newly installed onsite plant. Material offtake will then be transferred to BINGO’s advanced recycling plants at Eastern Creek and Patons Lane where it will be turned into BINGO’s ECO-product range of recycled building and landscaping products.
“With construction activity expected to increase across Sydney over the coming year, the opening of our Mortdale facility is well-timed.
“Sydney’s population and economic growth is fuelling an increase in waste volumes and we need recycling infrastructure such as this, to prevent waste from going into landfill,” Mr Tartak said.
BINGO’s Mortdale facility is now open to the public six days a week, Monday to Friday 6:00am – 5:00pm and Saturday 6:00am – 1:00pm.
