Hampton Park Resource Recovery Precinct Update

29/10/2012

Since early 2011, SITA has been refining and upgrading all the processes essential to manage community waste deposited at its Hampton Park Resource Recovery Precinct. Lengthy rain periods experienced during 2011 triggered anaerobic activity within the waste, causing early generation of landfill gas that is not usually experienced until the landfill cell is completely filled and capped.

To respond to this substantial change, SITA implemented a range of initiatives including reducing the size of the active waste cell, altering established waste filling and capping practices, installing additional gas collection wells and gas fired generators and installing a landfill odour neutraliser system, which is the first of its kind in Australia.  These changes in operational practice not only provide innovative solutions to current facility issues, they also provide a committed response to the changing urban environment in which the Hampton Park Resource Recovery Precinct is located.

Further, on 21 September 2012, the Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) accepted an offer of an Enforceable Undertaking (EU) from SITA to address odour offences asserted by neighbours of the Precinct.  The EU clearly establishes actions that SITA must undertake for the next three years to address operational improvements at the facility and to manage increased landfill gas generation, which has been the source of the odour.
