Hampton Park, Australia
Commercial & Industrial (C&I) Sorting Facility
The Hampton Park site has a C&I Sorting Facility which sorts recyclables from waste loads presented at the weighbridge. Waste loads that are indicated to have a high percentage of recyclables are sent to the C&I Sorting Facility for further investigation. The items targeted for diversion from landfill, separation and recycling include:
- Untreated timber
Construction & Demolition (C&D) Facility
Open hours: Monday - Friday: 8am - 4pm
In partnership with SUEZ-ResourceCo the Hampton Park site operates a C&D Facility. Waste loads containing reinforced concrete, bricks, asphalt and mixed clean fill with rubble are diverted from landfill to the C&D Facility for sorting. From these materials a 20mm class 4 road base product is produced. The facility currently produces in excess of 100, 000 tonnes per annum of crushed rock base for sale back into the local construction market.

Product Destruction Unit
The technology deployed in the PDU is specifically tailored to the type of product being destroyed, be it end-of-line stock, out-of-date stock, recalled product, insurance claims, damaged stock or custom seized items. All products are held in a secure 24-hour video bonded area prior to destruction. Recyclable materials such as glass, aluminium, paper, cardboard, steel, plastic and liquid are recovered for reuse during the destruction process. Any non-recyclable remains are compacted and disposed of under supervision at SUEZ's onsite landfill.
