Welcome to the new Hamilton-based Waste Management Resource Recovery Park. It opened to the public at the end of last year and averages 120 vehicles and 180 tonnes of waste per day,
Some of its features include:
Rainwater is captured from the roof and reused onsite for essential non-potable uses – such as water for the firehose. There is capacity to store 100,000 litres.
A new Community Recycling Shop will be opening in June, selling recovered and repurposed second hand goods. The community will be able to drop off unwanted items free of charge, via an undercover drive-through recycling hub. This was a hugely popular part of the old Hamilton City Council owned transfer station which was formerly managed by Waste Management.
