Hallam gets a state-of-the-art new tip
“It’s been a huge effort by all involved to get it up and running,” Managing Director Tyrone Landsman explained, “We are really proud of this great new facility and look forward to servicing the wider community in Hallam.”
The purpose-built indoor tip features a massive undercover area for sorting and recycling and bays for separation of waste. Most waste types are accepted including green waste, general waste, builders’ waste and recyclables such as cardboard, car batteries and metals including white goods and electronics.
The aim of the transfer station is to extract as much recyclable and reusable material as possible from waste streams to avoid landfill. In fact, up to 70% of waste is diverted each year from landfill. And with a capacity of 60,000 tonnes – that’s a lot of waste diverted.
Scrap and metal recycling is still a part of the facility and business. Ferrous and non-ferrous metals can be sold, with payments made by direct transfer. Prices are market driven and are based on weight with minimum quantities applicable.
The team at Future Recycling have applied learnings from years in the business and the successful conversion of the Pakenham Waste Transfer Station. At Hallam, there’s a well-planned traffic flow and computerised public weigh bridge which records volume and type of waste, along with client details.
Overall, it’s a much different experience from the tips of the past. There is even a friendly team to help you unload if required.
