Taylors Road RRP Facilities

Taylors Road Resource Recovery Precinct (RRP) is a multipurpose waste management site, located in Dandenong South to the south-east of Melbourne, Victoria. 

The site accepts material from municipal, commercial, and industrial clients for recovery, remediation, and disposal.

EarthSure soil wash plant

EarthSure is a joint venture between Veolia and Ventia to provide specialist remediation services. Through EarthSure, a soil washing plant will be introduced as a supplementary treatment option to the existing waste management solutions provided onsite. The plant will transform contaminated soils into valuable products, ready for reuse. 

The existing EarthSure facility currently remediates Category A and B contaminated soils using state-of-the-art thermal desorption technology. The addition of the soil washing plant provides another cost-effective and sustainable recovery solution, particularly for the extension into Category C soil management and diversion away from landfill. 

The output of the soil washing plant is a range of sands and aggregates that can be returned to the site of origin, or reused for civil and construction projects. The small amount of waste concentrate from soil washing is treated onsite by thermal desorption, meaning no transport of residue is required. 

Priority waste landfill

Veolia's Taylors Road Landfill is the only facility in Victoria licensed to receive a broad range of solid 'priority waste' (often referred to as 'hazardous waste'), classified as Category B in accordance to EPA Victoria's Industrial Waste Resource Guidelines. 

The site has been specifically designed to include a variety of environmental protection measures, including:

  • Strict waste acceptance and handling procedures
  • Side and basal liner systems
  • Collection and treatment of leachate (wastewater generated within the cell)
  • Collection and use of biogas
  • Groundwater and surface management
  • Detailed environmental monitoring and reporting

These measures meet or exceed requirements set out in the facility's operating licences issues by the EPA.

Depackaging facility (coming soon)

The onsite depackaging facility supports the circular economy by diverting materials away from landfills. Recovered organic materials are sent for composting, while recyclable materials undergo further processing.

Taylors Road RRP Community Reference Group (CRG)

The Group provides a forum for discussion and feedback between the Veolia project team and representatives of the community and local councils on matters relating to the Taylors Road facility. This facilitates community awareness of the operations, environmental performance and any development of the facility, and fosters understanding and cooperation to minimise the impact of the facility on the local community. The CRG is not a decision-making body; it performs an advisory and consultative role.
