SURVEY INTRODUCTION

SUEZ Recycling & Recovery Pty Ltd (SUEZ) are seeking to establish a state-of-the art Resource Recovery Park (RRP) located at 21 Muir Road, Chullora in Sydney. SUEZ plan to develop and operate the first phase of the Chullora RRP as a Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) to process co-mingled and source separated “yellow bin” recyclable material from households and dry commercial and industrial waste. The $40 million state-of-the-art investment will have a material recovery capacity of up to 172,000 tonnes per annum.

The proposed MRF aims to help alleviate two critical emerging challenges for recycling:

1) Australia’s national recycling crisis caused by the national ban on exporting “waste” paper, plastic, glass and tyres, by incorporating a beneficiation process within the proposed MRF to improve recyclables quality and recovering material to a quality which meets local reuse specifications; and

2) Tighter restrictions on global recycled commodity markets, by recovering and processing recyclables to a quality suitable for sale in international markets. 

The proposed MRF is considered a State Significant Development (SSD). SUEZ is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to support the SSD application for the project. We are seeking community feedback as part of the EIS preparation, from people who live or work in the Chullora area.

The survey has 2 parts, each designed to gather feedback about a particular topic:

- Part 1: Recycling and other opportunities

- Part 2: Community well-being in the Chullora area.

Your participation is voluntary and you will not be required to provide personal information. The survey should take less than 10 minutes and your responses may be used in the final EIS documents which will be made available for public viewing. We appreciate your time and value any feedback you can offer.

Please contact the project team on 0466413645 or jamie@elementenvironment.com.au if you have any questions about this survey.

Regards, the Chullora MRF Project Team.
