Kimbriki’s Recycling and Reuse Programs

Kimbriki was originally established as a landfill facility in 1974. Then in 1989-90, resource recovery operations for vegetation and scrap metal commenced on site and the Kimbriki Recycling and Waste Disposal Centre commenced.

This significant shift from waste disposal to resource recovery shaped the future of Kimbriki and today the site recycles over 80% of incoming wastes extending the remaining life of the Kimbriki landfill past the 2000’s and well into the 2040’s at the present rate. To date, more than 4 million tonnes of waste has been diverted from landfill at Kimbriki through resource recovery operations on site!

VEGETATION:

  • Australian Native Landscapes (ANL) operates the vegetation and wood waste recycling area at Kimbriki. www.anlscapecom.au
  • ANL receives between 75,000 and 90,000 tpa of vegetation and wood waste from Council collections, self-haul residents and commercial customers.

HOUSEHOLD PROBLEM WASTE

The Household Problem Waste Drop-off area allows customers to drop paint, car batteries, e-waste, clothing, motor oils and toys.  These materials, which cannot be disposed of in landfill, are taken off-site by our recycling partners for for recycling and/or or reuse.
