Western Operational Area (Modification 9) Update

Western Operational Area (Modification 9) Update

BINGO is progressing a modification to the Project Approval issued by the NSW Department of Planning, Housing and Infrastructure  (DPHI) in relation to the Eastern Creek Recycling Ecology Park’s Western Operational Area (Modification 9).

BINGO previously engaged with the community and the Department on Modification 9 in 2021, and the proposal was subsequently placed on hold to align with the broader Eastern Creek Recycling Ecology Park master plan priorities.

The proposal seeks to relocate existing approved recycling activities to a new fully enclosed facility in the Western Operational Area and improve stormwater outcomes across the Recycling Ecology Park.   The proposal also includes the provision of a new exit road and two exit weighbridges to the Honeycomb Drive Extension. This road reconfiguration would allow for a one-way traffic flow of vehicles through the site, improving operational performance and reducing impacts on the local road network. Since the inception of this proposal, several amendments have been made to the design to optimise the layout and reflect BINGO’s projected operational conditions resulting in improvements upon the previous proposal presented to the community in 2021. The updates to the design include:

  • Removal of the green waste processing shed, due to a reduction in demand for greenwaste processing. 
  • Reduction in development footprint, now limited to a smaller area of land adjacent to the southern boundary of the conservation zone.
  • Improved internal and external traffic flows by way of a new exit road. The expedited construction of the Honeycomb Drive extension (estimated for completion in late 2024) has provided an opportunity to include a new exit road with a connection to the Honeycomb drive extension. 
  • Improved environmental outcomes by optimising the stormwater management infrastructure.
