SUEZ to provide resource recovery for Northern Beaches Council
Tuesday, 28 November, 2017
Kimbriki is a local waste management and resource recovery company owned by the Northern Beaches Council and Mosman Council. SUEZ, meanwhile, provides solutions to collect, recover and recycle waste into valuable new products and resources.
The new contract between the two companies will see SUEZ provide services to process and recover the 50,000 tonnes of municipal mixed solid waste and 4000 tonnes of garden organic waste collected each year from the 260,000 residents of the Northern Beaches Council. The contract will commence on 1 July 2019 and is valued at approximately $199 million over 10 years.
The Northern Beaches Council’s mixed solid waste (red bin) will firstly be delivered to Belrose Transfer Station and then sent to be processed at the Eastern Creek Advanced Resource Recovery Facility, owned and operated by Global Renewables under an exclusivity waste processing contract with SUEZ. The facility diverts household waste from landfill recovering recyclable materials and turning the organic fraction of the waste into compost.
“Our partnership with Northern Beaches Council will increase the recovery, re-use and recycling of resources and ultimately reduce the volume of waste disposed at landfill,” said Mark Venhoek, CEO of SUEZ Australia and New Zealand.
“We know that Northern Beaches’ residents care about their impact on the environment. We look forward to helping Council meet its 70% waste diversion target.”
