Taree Landfill Green Waste



START DATE: February 2023

END DATE: Aug 2023



SITE MANAGER: Blake Rosenbaum



The proactive approach taken by ACG to excavate an additional 1 meter below the design surface level, resulted in an extra 20,000 cubic meters of material for our client. This initiative not only demonstrated efficiency but also potentially saved the client approximately $3.5 million in costs.


The current Taree Waste Management Centre was reaching its operational capacity, prompting the need for a new landfill cell to be constructed north of the existing area.

Alongside this, a new green waste processing storage area is necessary to accommodate additional green waste.

Utilising excavated material as capping for general waste, ACG, in collaboration with the client, excavated an extra 1 meter below the designated surface level, yielding an additional 20,000 cubic meters of material, potentially saving the client around $3.5 million.

Given the facility’s EPA license, there was a crucial need to ensure all material movements were properly captured and recorded within EPA requirements to mitigate risks. This project was completed on time for the Green Waste commissioning, with additional scope included.
