Envirowaste opens modern green transfer station

Envirowaste opens modern green transfer station in Manukau

Manukau City Mayor, Sir Barry Curtis officially opened EnviroWaste’s new $3.5 million state of the art Wiri Transfer Station at a function held in Auckland this afternoon.

The new transfer station, located on the corner of Wiri Station Road and Langley Roads in Manukau City, will be one of the largest in the region and have the capability to process 150,000 tonnes of refuse every year.

CEO of EnviroWaste, Paul Bishop, is proud of EnviroWaste’s commitment to being a leader in their field, and providing quality and innovative waste disposal facilities.

“We are really excited about the capabilities of the Wiri Transfer Station,” says Bishop. “We want to keep leading the industry to ensure New Zealand remains clean, green and pure for future generations.”

“This is a significant step forward for Envirowaste services. With the closure of Greenmount landfill and the opening of the new Hampton Downs facility the long term future of waste for the Auckland region is secure. This transfer station forms part of the support network for the Hampton Downs landfill and provides an efficient clean, modern service for waste collectors and the public alike.

“This facility will allow us to handle much of the Manukau City waste stream, together with that from surrounding areas. The station and the transport to Hampton Downs is the most modern and efficient in New Zealand.

Decked out in cutting edge technology, the station’s computerised data processing equipment will enable efficient billing, data analysis and management reporting. The new transfer station also features recycling drop-off facilities for paper, cardboard, glass, plastic, aluminium cans and ferrous and non-ferrous metals, which can be sorted on-site for recycling or reuse.

The Transfer Station will have the facilities for the disposal of household waste, greenwaste and cleanfill. It officially opens to the public on the June 10.
