Mixed Dry Waste

Dry materials such as timber offcuts, sawdust, textiles and plastics can be processed into alternative fuels that replace fossil fuels in industrial furnaces.

Mixed Dry Waste at a Glance

We collect and accept dry waste (mixed waste that does not contain food or other organics). Resources such as steel, cardboard and untreated timber are recovered where possible and any residual is disposed of accordingly.

What happens after we've collected your Mixed Dry Waste?

Once received at a SUEZ Resource Recovery Facility, material is mechanically and manually sorted, with the ferrous and non-ferrous metals, inert fractions (bricks, concrete etc) and non-recyclables removed from the dry (combustible) portion of this material stream.

All salvaged metals are shipped to specialist external companies for sorting and recycling. The inert fractions are recycled and resupplied to the civil construction market as an alternative to traditional quarried products.

The dry material can then be manufactured into Processed Engineered Fuel (PEF) for use as an alternative to traditional fossil fuels.

SUEZ-ResourceCo C&D Resource Recovery Facilities

Through our joint venture operation, SUEZ-ResourceCo, we operate dedicated C&D Resource Recovery Facilities in Hampton Park, Victoria and also Lonsdale and Wingfield in South Australia. The SUEZ-ResourceCo facilities receive both clean and unclean C&D material streams, as well as large volumes of mixed and clean fill materials. It provides an integrated resource recovery solution that diverts C&D waste away from landfill, by maximising the recovery of recyclable materials.

The first fully integrated SUEZ-ResourceCo plant was commissioned in November 2006 in Wingfield, South Australia. The fully automated plant sorts, sizes and extracts various matter and associated by-products from commercial waste streams in order to generate Process Engineered Fuel as a replacement for fossil fuels; the end use being power generation and cement manufacturing. The Wingfield facility has the capability to manufacture up to 350,000 tonnes of raw material per annum into approximately 100,000 to 150,000 tonnes of Process Engineered Fuel and was the first of its kind in Australia.

SUEZ-ResourceCo is now in the process of establishing additional Process Engineered Fuel manufacturing facilities throughout Australia, based on the same platform as the existing Hampton Park and Wingfield sites.
