Have your say on the expansion of a Revesby resource recovery facility

  • Date: 13.10.2016
  • Type: Departmental Media Release
  • Author: Department of Planning and Environment

A proposal by Bells Hire Pty Ltd to expand its existing resource recovery facility on Violet Street in Revesby will be on exhibition from today for community consultation.

The Department of Planning and Environment is keen to hear the community’s views on the proposal, which seeks to increase the processing capacity at the recycling centre from 30,000 tonnes to 250,000 tonnes per year of non-putrescible construction and demolition waste, and commercial and industrial wastes.

‘Non-putrescible’ wastes to be processed at the recycling include metal, timber, paper, cardboard, glass, plastics, ceramics, asphalt, soils, bricks and concrete.

A spokesperson for the Department of Planning and Environment said the local community always has an opportunity to share their views.

“Community consultation is an integral part of the planning process and the applicant will have to respond to the feedback we receive,” the spokesperson said.

“This feedback is taken into consideration as part of the assessment.

“It’s easy to participate by going online and we encourage everyone to take a look and have their say.”
