REMONDIS Australia retains ACT landfill contract

REMONDIS Australia has retained the ACT Government contract for landfill operations for at least another five years. This will see REMONDIS continue delivering general operations and landfill management services at Mugga Lane Resource Management Centre and Mugga Lane Quarry at Symonston, the ACT’s main disposal sites.

The management of both sides has been streamlined under one contract for the first time, enabling better cost and operational efficiencies.

Ongoing obligations include running the sites in line with best practice, ensuring that safety, efficiency and environmental responsibility are priorities. This principle is aligned with REMONDIS’s global focus on maximising diversion from landfill, re-use, recycling and resource recovery.

The Mugga Lane site receives materials permitted through ACT Environmental Authorisation rules, including putrescible and hazardous waste. Mugga Lane Quarry receives Virgin Excavated Natural Material (VENM), Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) and Beneficial Re-use Material (BRU).

REMONDIS has also committed to investing in a new compactor, dozer, excavator and more new equipment as part of the contract.

REMONDIS is tasked with operating and maintaining multiple Territory-owned waste management assets including an environmental data collection and management system, a truck wheel-wash system and a leachate pumping station.

Compliance will be taken to a new level with expanded reporting conditions.

Susie McBurney, REMONDIS Australia Executive General Manager – Operations, said, “REMONDIS enjoys a successful working relationship with the ACT Government and the extension of this contract is testimony to our expertise and local commitment.”

Since acquiring Thiess in 2012, REMONDIS has operated both sites and has options to extend operations at each site for separate one-year terms beyond the contract expiry in 2028.

The tender opened in December 2022 and closed in February 2023.
