Cardboard and plastics baling line opens at St Marys

REMONDIS Australia // 21 October 2022


Cardboard, paper and soft plastics baling is fully operational at REMONDIS St Marys


End-to-end recyclables management is now in-house and on-site


Did you know? St Marys is where REMONDIS commenced operations in Australia back in 1982


Cardboard, paper and soft plastics recycling has taken another step forward in New South Wales with REMONDIS now operating a state of the art baling facility at its REMONDIS St Marys facility in Western Sydney.

The $2.5 million facility has the capacity to bale up to 25,000 tonnes of recyclable material every year. 

The baling operation adds a vital waste processing link at the St Marys site, making it a cost-efficient and environmentally friendly one-stop-shop for waste collection, separation, sorting, bailing and distribution for recycling.

Recyclable materials are received from other waste collection companies and also direct from REMONDIS’s large customers. Much of the material orignates from Sydney’s Greater West, including local collection routes and shopping centres.

Much of the baled products will be processed via REMONDIS’ in-house Commodity Trading Desk, with bales transferred to Visy, Opal and offshore export markets for recycing into other cardboard products.

The baler is a 180 HP Godswill GB-1111F, having been refurbished at St Marys after the plant was acquired during the company’s acquisition of Watts Waste. The feed conveyor and ramp are new, supplied by Material Recovery Solutions. 

Four new jobs have been created as baling operations ramp up, adding to the 50+ existing jobs at the St Marys site which specalises in general commercial waste logistics and recycling services.

“This new bailing capacity means we can do end-to-end waste handling on site instead of collecting recyclables and sending them elsewhere for processing,” REMONDIS General Manager NSW/ACT Susie McBurney said.  

“The waste comes to us and we process it and feed it back to the market, enabling it to be used all over again.

“This is a win for local businesses wanting to manage their waste locally, and a win for the economy, employment and, most of all, the environment.”

The new capability is timely given cardboard use in Australia.

“Australia is a big consumer of cardboard,” REMONDIS Chief Technical Officer Alex Hatherly said.

“So much of what we buy comes in cardboard, and most is imported from manufacturers in South East Asia.

“The capability we’ve added at St Marys streamlines our ability to send used cardboard back to our northern neighbours where it can be recycled into more environmentally sustainable packaging for goods being imported to Australia, reducing consumption of virgin materials for packing production.”

The launch marks another milestone for REMONDIS, given that St Marys is where the international waste management leader commenced operations in Australia in 1982, forty years ago. Explore our history in Australia
