Hampton Park Resource Recovery Precinct Update

03/10/2012

During the year, while undertaking works to close Cell 8, SITA has advised community members that it was expected that the capping of Cell 8 would be complete by 30 September 2012. This was the date SITA projected to have completed all the necessary works.
While SITA management and staff have endeavoured to meet this deadline, including increasing the hours of operation, weather has again impacted planned works.
 

In particular, high winds experienced during September have caused delays in the installation of the 1mm linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) membrane that is laid across the filled cell prior to final capping soil being put in place. 
SITA is a NO HARM organisation and it's core belief is that all injuries, incidents, and accidents are preventable. To ensure all SITA staff and contractors are working safely, progress on the capping works has been postponed on several days throughout September. These delays have pushed the projected completion date out by a few weeks.
At this stage, it is expected that the plastic lining that provides the permanent cap on Cell 8 will be completed by mid October 2012. Again, this projected date is subject to good weather conditions that allows operational staff to work safely.
The final requirement to complete the closure and capping of Cell 8 is the installation and commissioning of the landfill gas extraction system.  The system will extract gas from the cell, process it through on site generators and convert it to green power contributing to the state’s electricity network. As long as the weather does not provide any further significant delays, it is expected that this work will be complete and the system operational by the end of October 2012.
