Special Wastes

Some wastes require special conditions to be met prior to disposal.

The NSW Environment Protection Authority (NSW EPA) issues licences to the owners or operators of waste and recycling facilities under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 (POEO Act). Kimbriki's licence outlines restrictions for certain wastes which may be hazardous to human health and/or the environment. These wastes may be only disposed of at Kimbriki when special conditions are met.

VENM (Virgin Excavated Natural Material)

Under the NSW Environment Protection Authority (NSW EPA)'s Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 (POEO Act), Virgin Excavated Natural Material (VENM) is defined as:

'natural material (such as clay, gravel, sand, soil or rock fines): 

(a) that has been excavated or quarried from areas that are not contaminated with manufactured chemicals, or with process residues, as a result of industrial, commercial, mining or agricultural activities, and 

(b) that does not contain any sulfidic ores or soils or any other waste

and includes excavated natural material that meets such criteria for virgin excavated natural material as may be approved for the time being pursuant to an EPA Gazettal notice.'

The receipt of VENM at Kimbriki is subject to guidelines as defined by the NSW EPA. 

VENM is a waste that has been pre-classified as general solid waste (non-putrescible). For more information, refer to the NSW EPA's guidelines on Classifying waste. 

The NSW EPA has issued a directive regarding VENM acceptance. Generators of VENM are required to provide information about the origin and specification of the material through a certification document.  All loads of VENM being delivered for disposal at Kimbriki, must have the NSW EPA certificate submitted prior to disposal.  

As a compliant and environmentally responsible site, Kimbriki will not accept loads of VENM without this certificate.

Staff will inspect all loads. If contaminants are found, mixed waste rates will apply.
