Housing and Property Group
The Property & Development NSW (PDNSW) team is responsible for the management and delivery of large scale or complex real estate projects and transactions.
Waste Assets Management Corporation (WAMC) is responsible for the rehabilitation and management of closed landfills, is a joint partner in the renewable energy business and provides other specialised services.
The former Belrose Closed Landfill accepted household waste from 1972 to 2014.
WAMC is responsible for managing the waste mass including monitoring groundwater, surface water, landfill gas, leachate levels in the waste mass and treated leachate.
WAMC utilises in house environmental expertise to undertake long-term monitoring responsibilities.
Strict sampling, monitoring and reporting protocols are adhered to, creating a high standard of consistency in reporting to regulators and in assessing and reducing environmental impacts.
This provides the data required to redevelop landfill sites for recreational activities or community benefits.
For example, the Belrose site is currently undergoing a transformation which will see the establishment of a mountain bike park on the former landfill site.
As former landfills require long-term monitoring and management, WAMC’s responsibilities will extend for several decades into the future.
The monitoring programs undertaken at the closed landfills are developed to meet the requirements of some or all of the following:
- Conditions of Consent
- Environment Protection Licences (EPL)
- Surrendered EPL conditions
- Terms of Agreements with local councils
- Voluntary Remediation Agreements
- Relevant Environmental Guidelines
The monitoring programs are part of WAMC’s integrated management system certified to ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018
- Establishing and extending the expertise of a team of environmental scientists in investigation, remediation and monitoring.
- Developing the skills of high quality in-house experts for future projects.
Review and reduce monitoring costs to ensure the rehabilitation fund is available for future management programs.
