Western Sydney Waste Diversion Project

The Western Sydney Waste Diversion Project involves the construction of a new Alternative Waste Treatment (AWT) facility that will use enclosed composting technology with the capacity to divert up to 100,000 tonnes of waste materials, located in Western Sydney, New South Wales. The project will process eligible mixed solid waste.

It will be received at the AWT Facility and specialist equipment used to clean and decontaminate the waste so that only organics suitable for composting remain. Any residual waste will be put into landfill.

Organics will be size reduced and dried using an aerated in-floor drying pad. The end product will be transferred to another site and further refined through a process called “open windrow composting”.

Emissions reductions will be delivered through the ​avoidance of landfill gas emissions by diverting the parts of garbage that decompose and create odour through the AWT facility.
