Waste Transfer and Resource Recovery Facility

Closed 3 Aug 2016

Opened 28 Jul 2016


Aurigen Group Limited proposes to develop a Waste Transfer and Resource Recovery Facility approximately 10 kilometres from Perth at 25 Jackson Street, Bassendean in the Bassendean Industrial Area.

The proposal would include:

- a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) for the  processing of co-mingled recyclables;

- acceptance, short term stockpiling and baling of source separated recycled commodities;

- glass crusher for management of waste glass from the MRF;

- a metal shredder for the processing of metal commodities;

- a Waste Transfer Station for the acceptance and short term storage of putrescible waste materials; and

- transportation off site of compacted putrescible waste materials that cannot be recycled to appropriate disposal facilities, and baled commodities for export.

Why your views matter

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

What happens next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The Chairman's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
