Lucas Heights Organic Resource Recovery Facility

The SUEZ Lucas Heights facility helps divert organics from going to landfill by converting it into high-quality composts and soil conditioners. The capacity of this facility is 50,000 tonnes of organic materials per year.

A sustainable solution to the management of garden organics

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. Once the windrows have matured, the compost is then screened and tested for sale. 

SUEZ Lucas Heights ORRF produces various products for landscaping and horticultural uses, including Lawn-ARRT™ Organic Top Dress and Rehab-ARRT™ Compost.

Lucas Heights also has its own volunteer-run Native Seedling Nursery, which produces native plants for the rehabilitation of the New Illawarra Road Landfill
