Adelaide’s world-class resource recovery and waste recycling operation, the Wingfield Waste & Recycling Centre, has launched a website at

The Joomla-based website is designed to profile the activities and achievements of the collaborative cluster of commercial businesses on a site managed by the Adelaide City Council.

The Wingfield recycling precinct provides a "one stop shop" for waste receipt, processing and recycling by accommodating complementary resource recovery activities. This innovative centre recovers about 87 per cent of the nearly one million tonnes of waste materials delivered to the precinct each year.

When the Wingfield dump closed on December 31, 2004, it was widely recognised as an Adelaide landmark. In its final year, it received more than one million tonnes of waste materials which were used in landfill.

Since then, the former Wingfield dump property has been reinvented as the Wingfield Waste & Recycling Centre, an internationally recognised waste recovery and recycling facility that has harnessed commercial motivations to deliver significant environmental benefits. Managed by the Adelaide City Council, the 94-hectare precinct has four primary tenants – Amcor; Adelaide Resource Recovery (ARR); Jeffries Group and Transpacific Industries (TPI) – which are each involved in providing state-of-the-art waste recovery and recycling services.
