Sydney Recycling Park is located 56km West of Sydney’s CBD on 11 hectares in the idyllic Kemps Creek area, accepting inert waste from Sydney’s Commercial, Industrial and Demolition markets. With close proximity to Sydney’s manufacturing and Industrial hubs in the Western region where the majority of Sydney’s waste is produced, its easily accessible from the M7 motorway to support your collections business.

Through innovative and sustainable practices Wanless is committed to reducing waste from landfill through an advanced technology sorting process whilst protecting the environment in which our facility operates and engaging the community that surrounds it.

We understand that whilst waste avoidance is the ideal solution there are always going to be residual inert wastes that need a disposal destination in Sydney, where waste is handled in an environmentally responsible manner with resource recovery and re-use at the forefront of its operations. To provide this assurance to our customers, we strictly adhere to local legislation and EPA guidelines managing our facility to the highest work place safety and environmental standards; currently operating two active engineered landfill cells in the southern section.

Our landfill cells have been designed to include a wide range of environmental protection methods as we operate on an active clay and shale quarry. Wanless has provided significant investment in groundwater and surface water management through a engineered stormwater detention basin and leachate pond. A further $3m has also been invested over the past three years to improve environmental performance in relation to dust emissions and sediment tracking.

Sydney Recycling Park’s current waste capacity is 250,000 cubic metres which will be further enhanced through the mining of clay and shale materials over the next two years. With the final land formation being taken into consideration, the design airspace remaining is 1,000,000 cubic metres with an estimation for completion in 2043.

Through our commitment of “Creating a better environment” the northern aspect of The Sydney Recycling Park is a fully comprehensive recycling facility where recoverable materials are screened, processed, treated and recovered for re-use locally.

Our facility processes up to 220,000 tonnes of waste per annum, with approximately 85% of incoming material diverted from landfill.

With strict protocols that ensure quality control, we have developed an efficient, effective process that ensures all materials are allocated properly and recycled in the appropriate manner including:

Metals

We recover various ferrous and non-ferrous metals through our process, which are sent to a local recycler to be processed into new metal products

Cardboard

We recover cardboard which is re-baled and delivered to the Botany processing facility to be made into new corrugated box products

Timber

All recyclable timber is sorted and chipped onsite and is transferred to a local recycling facility for use as garden mulch.

Concrete

We sort heavy materials like concrete which can be sent to a recycling facility where its put through a crushing and screening process to be made into new road base

Soil

Clean, uncontaminated soil is accepted and screened to remove aggregates to be re-used in local industry or as landfill cover in our own facility

Aggregates

We separate aggregates to be sent locally for recycling where they are recycled to produce high grade road base and other aggregates for civil construction and infrastructure projects

The community relies on facilities such as The Sydney Recycling Park at Kemps Creek to provide safe and appropriate treatment of waste materials, both now and into the future. This includes conservation of resources and allowing for the efficient and cost effective recovery of materials for reintroduction into the economy.

Above all, the community needs for these functions to be undertaken in a way that value the protection of the environment including:

  • Stringent planning of all activities
  • Odour monitoring and management
  • Noise management and acceptance of wastes during business hours
  • Maximum of 90 vehicles accepted per day
