SITA to lodge updated works approval application for Allawuna Farm project

26/11/2014

SITA will lodge an updated works approval application with Western Australia’s Department of Environment Regulation for the development of the Allawuna Farm Project.

SITA’s State General Manager Nial Stock said the updated application will reflect progress in the detailed design and planning for the landfill facility at Allawuna Farm, St Ronan’s, on the Great Southern Highway.

SITA is one of Australia’s leading waste, recycling and resource recovery service providers. Mr Stock said planning for the facility began four years ago with consideration of almost two dozen sites across four shires.

“Our proposal continues to be the subject of a robust environmental and planning process. As we continue to work through the planning for the facility it is clear that Allawuna Farm remains the best option,” Mr Stock said.

“The updated works approval application will reflect further environmental studies and detailed design and planning that has been undertaken. The updated application will be based on the results of continued studies and feedback from engineers, experts and relevant agencies,” Mr Stock said.

Mr Stock said the proposed landfill provides an economically viable and environmentally sound solution to future waste disposal needs.

The proposed Allawuna Farm project accounts for less than four per cent of the 1516 hectare property, which will remain a working farm.

SITA is looking to work with local contractors and local employment will receive a boost with an estimated 24 full time positions required by the facility.

SITA’s first preference is always to recycle the waste it receives and in Western Australia, the company operates facilities which divert 100,000 tonnes of collected waste from landfill each year.
