Epping Resource Recovery Facility

The SUEZ Organics Epping facility helps divert organics from going to landfill and recover these valuable resources for healthy plant growth.

The most environmentally sustainable solution to the recycling of organic matter

The facility has the capacity to process up to 65,000 tonnes per year of organic material, including garden organics from 5 councils.  This material is converted into high quality composts and soil conditioners.

The composted organic products are tailored to meet market demands, and the process is designed to consistently deliver this outcome. Incoming  feedstocks are carefully blended in proportions that ensure the resulting compost meets end use requirements, with parameters including correct moisture content and ratios of nitrogen and phosphorous.

The mixed organics are composted in an open windrow composting process, which enables the temperature and moisture levels in the compost to be monitored and controlled, optimising the breakdown of the organics and destroying pathogens. After 8-12 weeks, the windrows have matured and the compost can be screened and tested for sale.

SUEZ Organics Epping ORRF produces various products – many of which are accredited to the AS4454 Australian Standard – that are then sold to nurseries and landscapers.

Refer to the SUEZ Organics VIC page for more information on the high quality composted products manufactured by the facility.
