Increase diversion rates of waste

It is estimated that Australia generates 67 million tonnes of waste per year and despite our continuing efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle, a staggering 60% of this waste goes to landfill. It’s no secret that Australia is running out of landfill. We need solutions that divert waste from landfill and help us achieve more sustainable outcomes for the health of our planet and our community.

FAQs

Below you will find answers to some of the most common queries BINGO INDUSTRIES receives regarding the Eastern Creek Recyling Centre

What is the Eastern Creek Recycling Ecology Park?

BINGO’s Eastern Creek Recycling Ecology Park is a world class recycling precinct, capable of recovering up-to 80% of all materials collected at site. The site is comprised of two state-of-the-art Materials Processing Centres, a waste transfer station and a general solid waste (non-putrescible) landfill.

In FY20 BINGO commenced construction of Materials Processing Centre (MPC) 2.

What is a Materials Processing Centre?

As Sydney’s population continues to grow, the need for effective recycling infrastructure increases. BINGO collects materials through our Waste Transfer Station where it is sorted into various materials streams. These materials are then processed through our Material Processing Centres. Depending on the material size and type it may be sorted, washed, crushed and remanufactured. The remanufactured recycled product produced at our Materials Processing Centres is of a high quality and can be used for building and landscaping purposes. This process provides a better, more sustainable future for the environment we live in, by reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

Will the Recycling Ecology Park be taking household waste?

No. We will not be taking household waste. Household waste is classified as putrescible waste meaning it contains organic matter that is liable to putrefaction (rapid degradation by microorganisms). BINGO’s Eastern Creek Recycling Ecology Park will only accept non-putrescible waste.

Will the site emit an odour?

No. The Ecology Park will not emit offensive odours. This is because we only accept non-putrescible waste, which does not readily decay under standard conditions. The waste also will not attract vermin or other vectors such as flies, birds and rodents.

Is the site currently under development?

Yes. Currently, BINGO is constructing its Materials Processing Centre 2 (MPC2). You can find more detailed information about this development and any associated development documentation in the resources section of this page. You can also subscribe to our community newsletter to receive regular updates on this development.

Will the development activity produce noise?

Noise levels will not exceed those set out in the Conditions of Consent.

Has this development gained to appropriate regulatory approvals?

Yes. The development currently being completed on MPC2 has been approved. You can find all approval documents, including Statutory Approvals and Conditions of Consent, in the Resources section on this page. Any future development of the Recycling Ecology Park will include appropriate community consultation and engagement.

Is the REP connected to the Genesis Waste to Energy project?

The site and facilities acquired by BINGO did not include The Next Generation Waste-to-Energy site. This is still owned by Genesis Xero. BINGO has no plans to develop a waste-to-energy facility at this time on the Eastern Creek Recycling Ecology Park. 

Do you send your waste overseas to be recycled?

BINGO processes building & demolition and commercial & industrial waste. We do not take household or putrescible waste. The majority of the waste we collect is processed, recycled and remanufactured here in Australia. We believe Australia has a great opportunity to develop its own thriving recycling industry and we see facilities like our Recycling Ecology Park as an important part of moving Australia to a circular economy.

Will the Recycling Ecology Park affect the surrounding environment?

BINGO Recycling Ecology Park will not affect groundwater, surface water, ecology, heritage or soils and land capabilities.

Our team is committed to ensuring the responsible and sustainable environmental management of the Recycling Ecology Park site and surrounding area, now and in the future. We will implement all reasonable and feasible measures to prevent and/or minimise disruption to the environment that may result from any of our development activities.

All environmental reports and approval processes to date can be accessed on the resources section of this page.
