Creating and developing an amazing recycle precinct to drive a circular economy
Encouraged by favourable policy shifts that promote recycling over waste disposal, BINGO acquired the site in 2019 with a vision to develop the land into a one-of-a-kind recycling precinct. The site currently recovers around 85% of materials that are processed at its recycling facility. When development of the Recycling Ecology Park is complete, it will be capable of processing and recycling all Building & Demolition (B&D) and Commercial & Industrial (C&I) waste streams, including bricks, concrete, glass, plastic, metal, sand, soils, tyres and timber.
A vision for the future
The new plant is capable of processing both building & demolition (B&D) and commercial & industrial (C&I) waste. The advanced screening, sorting and processing technology installed in the new plant will produce a high-quality end product, most of which will be turned into BINGO’s ECO Product range of recycled building and landscaping products such as aggregate, roadbase, sand, soil, mulches, paper, cardboard, plastics and metals.
The plant has also been fitted with the latest in safety, environment and fire management technology and rain water catchment tanks. The new recycling centre will also be fitted with rooftop solar later this year, as part of BINGO’s RE100 commitment to achieve 100% renewable electricity across all its sites by 2025.
“We have a big vision for our Eastern Creek Ecology Park with development plans underway for additional facilities at the site to deliver solutions for other waste streams such as tyres, plastics and glass, we are really proud of what we have achieved here.”
The Master Plan for MPC2
Stage 2 of the master plan development will include the construction of innovative recycling infrastructure for processing glass and plastics, ferrous and non-ferrous metals and recycled product manufacturing facilities., with around 200 million dollars to be invested. Currently in its first stage of development which includes the construction of MPC 2, the Park will generate over 400 jobs during the construction phase and an additional 200 jobs once operational.
