The Waste Sorting Centre (WSC) receives waste from the community. The facility allows the community to divert material from landfill when an alternative market or demand exists.
The facility is constructed on two levels on the site of the original Blenheim transfer station. The upper level receives waste from the community and provides options to separate out wood, metal, brick, soil, ewaste and hazardous waste into various bays and containers.
There are also three Safety Refuse Tipping (SRT) machines that allow the community to unload their waste and have it transferred into the sorting shed. Waste received inside the shed is then put through a mechanical and hand sort to extract materials which have an existing end market.
The WSC is subject to fees and charges.
Loading waste from height
The site has a number of open bays and waste containers that are loaded from above. To mitigate the potential for slips and falls, safety gates have been installed.
Outputs from the WSC
The outputs from the sorting centre are recorded via the weighbridge. The following table provides a breakdown of these outputs for the previous year and is updated each July.
