New 'cell' could extend tip life by seven years

Central Coast Council has released a proposal for comment to move the current filling area at Woy Woy tip to an area at the southern end, referred to as the South Cell.

The site of the proposed South Cell has an area of about five hectares and could extend the tip's life by more than seven years.

It has previously been mostly cleared and is currently being used for excavation and stockpiling of engineering and cover material for the existing landfilling operations, according to a scoping report.

The project is expected to provide about an additional 970,000 cubic metres of airspace or seven and half years of filling capacity at currently filling rates, it states.

It is also expected to generate additional construction materials for cell construction and cover material for the ongoing landfilling operations.

The tip has operated since 1974 and is the main solid waste management facility for the southern end of the Central Coast.

Currently around 85,000 tonnes of waste are added to the landfill each year.

The current tipping area is expected to be full by mid or late next year.

The project would "reduce the need for costly alternatives such as transporting domestic waste to another waste management facility or excavating and building a new waste management cell elsewhere", according to the council's Your Voice Our Coast website.

"The new proposed tipping area will require some further earthworks and the construction of a fully-engineered landfill liner and water management system before it is ready to be utilised.

"The development will be subject to approvals from the Hunter Central Coast Regional Planning Panel and the NSW Environment Protection Authority.

"Council is seeking the community's feedback on the questions and considerations they would like included in the EIS.
