NSW Department of Planning and Environment

On 19 May 2022, Sell & Parker Pty Ltd, owner of the Kings Park Metal Recovery and Recycling Facility, was convicted in the NSW Land and Environment Court for non-compliance with the conditions of consent. The charges related to the receipt of more than 195,000 tonnes of waste in 2016, and 268,000 in 2017, well above the temporary limit of 90,000 that was in place while other parts of the facility were being commissioned and assessed.

The court convicted Sell and Parker and ordered it to pay a total of $250,000 in fines, $269,630 to the Department for its legal costs and ordered the company to publish notices in the Daily Telegraph, Financial Review and Sydney Morning Herald.
