BINGO Industries Recycling Ecology Park Master Plan – Stage 1

Written by BINGO INDUSTRIES Published on 27th August 2020

In August, Stage 1 of BINGO’s master plan for the development of its world-leading 82-hectare Recycling Ecology Park at Eastern Creek was submitted to NSW planning authorities. 

Located in Western Sydney’s growth precinct, the Recycling Ecology Park is a large-scale recycling precinct that processes Building and Demolition (B&D) and Commercial and Industrial (C&I) waste. 

With a licence to process up to two million tonnes of waste each year and capable of both material recovery and recycled product manufacturing, the Ecology Park is a one-of-a-kind recycling precinct in Australia. 

The site currently recovers over 85% of materials it collects and when development is complete, it will be capable of processing and recycling all B&D and C&I waste streams, including bricks, concrete, glass, plastic, metal, sand, soils and timber. All on the one site, these materials will be sorted, recovered and then reprocessed into BINGO’s ECO Product range of recycled products, providing Sydney with a sustainable, circular solution for B&D and C&I waste.

BINGO’s Recycling Ecology Park will provide the Greater Sydney Region with crucial recycling infrastructure to help communities divert more waste from landfill and close the resources loop. This important project is estimated to generate 400 jobs during the construction phase and 200 additional jobs once operational for the Western Sydney region.

BINGO acquired its Eastern Creek site from Dial a Dump Industries in 2019 and is constructing the park’s second Materials Processing Centre, the 9,000m2 MPC2, which was an existing approved development application. 

The site acquired by BINGO does not include The Next Generation Waste to Energy development and BINGO has no plans to develop a Waste to Energy facility at its Eastern Creek Recycling Ecology Park. 

Stage 2 of the master plan development will include the construction of innovative waste infrastructure such as glass and plastics, ferrous and non-ferrous metal and recycled products manufacturing facilities. 

The park is being built to exceed sustainability, environmental and safety standards with advanced fire safety, rooftop solar and rainwater catchment systems being installed. Eventually, the site will be 100% powered by renewable energy.

BINGO is committed to continuing to work with its local stakeholders in Western Sydney, particularly local residents, to ensure they are kept up-to-date on any development activities.
