Leachate System

Location Moree | NSW
Value $3.0m
Timeline Dec 2020 Aug 2021

Synergy was contracted by the Moree Plains Shire Council to excavate, stockpile and line the second stage of Landfill Cell 1 to meet the local residents’ future waste management needs. 

The expansion of the Moree Waste Management facility will double the capacity available to the local residents. Operating within the current landfill site, works were coordinated with present site users and had minimal impact on the day-to-day running of the landfill operations.

The bulk excavation,  utilising scrapers, excavators and graders was completed ahead of the scheduled program.

This allowed the installation of the detailed lining system, including connection to the existing liner to be completed during favorable weather conditions. While connecting the lining systems, challenges arose due to leachate migration from the existing cell to the new cell. Despite posing difficulties in the works, a collaborative effort ensured a quick efficient solution.

“Synergy were fantastic to work with in constructing the landfill cell at the Moree Waste Management Facility. The team were always responsive to Council’s needs and helped lead the project through any challenges that arose. Synergy came to the project with a positive can-do and supportive attitude and were always there to pass on their expertise and experience to us at Council.”

Victoria Dawson, Waste Manager at Moree Plains Shire Council
