Kimbriki Environmental Enterprises is holding a Community Information Session on Saturday September 4 from 2pm to introduce its improvement plans for waste management facilities at its Terrey Hills site.

The Community Information Session will also give community members and other stakeholders the opportunity to ask questions about the plans.

“We look forward to informing community members about our plans and importantly, hearing their feedback,” said Mark Winser, Senior Project Officer at Kimbriki.

“Our plans include the construction of two purpose-built facilities, a Materials Recovery Facility for sorting kerbside recyclables and an Alternative Waste Technology facility for sorting and treating mixed municipal and organic wastes,” Mr Winser said.

“These facilities will help us manage our community’s waste today and into the future.”

The new facilities will be able to recover valuable metals, plastics and paper from kerbside recyclables and make compost products, reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.

With Belrose landfill due to close within the next four years, Kimbriki’s waste management plans will provide a locally sustainable solution for managing household waste and avoid costly alternatives such as transporting waste by road to distant landfill.

All feedback received from the Community Information Session will be taken into account when the Environmental Assessment is lodged with the NSW Department of Planning later this year.

All community members are welcome on the day, but it is preferable to RSVP by email: d.sider@kjassoc.com.au or by phone: 1800 252 040.

In the meantime, comments can be lodged on Kimbriki website via a feedback form provided. Visit www.kimbriki.com.au
