Clyde Transfer Station, NSW

Clyde Transfer Station

Clyde Transfer Terminal

Veolia has proven experience operating the Clyde facility, one of the most efficient transfer facilities in the world, with noise reduction and odour management systems that have set new environmental and technical benchmarks for waste facilities. Now at capacity, the rail transport solution is already reducing local truck movements by 37,500 per annum. 

Up to 600,000 tonnes of waste per annum is received at the facility, with mixed household waste containerised for transfer to Veolia’s site at Woodlawn by rail for treatment and resource recovery. 

Operational since 2004, the Clyde Transfer Terminal is a significant piece of state infrastructure which is consistent with government policy, utilising the freight rail network for transport and facilitating greater resource recovery, by opening up access to remote treatment solutions to form part of Sydney’s long-term waste strategy. This facility supports existing source separated initiatives such as curbside recycling and provides access to Veolia's Woodlawn Bioreactor and Mechanical Biological Treatment Facility.

The Woodlawn Bioreactor currently provides a solution for the management of approximately 20% of Sydney’s putrescible waste via the Clyde Transfer Terminal.
