The company behind the proposed Sydney dump at Ardlethan has responded to community concerns.
Ardlethan Environmental Solutions (AES), a division of Australian Tin Resources (ATR), plan to develop a solid waste landfill at Ardlethan which will initially accept about 200,000 tonnes of Sydney waste to be delivered by rail.
Peter Francis from ATR said the amount of waste could grow to 400,000 tonnes per year over time.
“We will also accept regional waste delivered by road if there is a demand, but this is not likely to exceed 5000 tonnes per year,” Mr Francis said.
The Yithan Landfill proposal had attracted fierce opposition from the community, with a meeting in June attracting 170 concerned local and district families as well as representatives from Griffith city and Narrandera, Bland and Coolamon shire councils.
