The Spring Farm Advanced Resource Recovery Park (formerly Macarthur Resource Recovery Park and originally Jacks Gully Waste and Recycling Centre) spans 38 hectares and over 100,000 cars and trucks use the park each year.
It consists of a number of linked areas for processing of mixed solid waste (MSW) and organic material.
The facility incorporates:
- An anaerobic digestion facility and electricity plant;
- A tunnel composting facility or organics processing; and
- A mechanical pre-treatment area, where non-organic materials are removed from MSW, leaving the organic material ready for further processing at the nearby Kemps Creek SAWT ARRT Facility.

Spring Farm Material Recycling Facility
Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) is like a giant factory where the recyclable materials that are collected from homes and businesses are taken to be sorted into different types or “streams” such as paper, plastics and aluminium for sale into local and overseas markets, and a resource recovery area for public drop off.
Through its council collections contract, the Spring Farm site currently services more than 104,000 households in four adjoining council areas.

Environment and Safety
At Veolia we take our responsibility to the safety of people and the environment seriously.
All visitors to Veolia facilities must observe site safety requirements, including wearing enclosed footwear at all times.
Veolia Environment Report Hotline
Veolia has a dedicated Environment Report Hotline for anyone living, or working, near one of our facilities in New South Wales and Victoria.
The hotline has been set up to receive feedback on environmental matters which are sometimes associated with recycling and waste management facilities – like odours, noise, dust and mud tracking.
This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your call will always be answered by a real person - not just an automated message - who will enter your feedback and forward it immediately to the staff at the facility. This allows us to take immediate action to determine the cause of any concerns you may have, and gives us the best chance of rectifying the situation quickly.
A Veolia employee will endeavour to contact you within 24 hours with feedback on your report.
To provide your feedback, please call:
