The Proposal

The proposal is for an organics treatment facility adjacent to the existing Copping Landfill for the processing of up to 30,000 tonnes of food organics and garden organics (FOGO) from municipal collections. Other organic wastes may also be composted. Three composting options are being considered including in-vessel composting, anaerobic digestion methods and open windrow composting, with in-vessel composting proposed as the main system. It is proposed to utilise the methane gas generated from the anaerobic digestion system to contribute fuel to the existing (or new) generator and feed into the existing electrical network at the adjacent landfill site.​​
