Oppose the Matraville Incinerator
JOIN OUR FIGHT FOR CLEAN AIR
A proposal to build a waste-to-energy incinerator plant at the paper mill recycling site on Botany Road in Matraville, by SUEZ, a French multinational corporation and waste management company, and Opal, owned by Japan’s Nippon Paper Industries, is being considered by the NSW Government.
The proposal is classified as State Significant Development as it is a co-generation of heat and electricity and has a capital investment value of over $30M. This means it bypasses local approvals of Randwick Council and will be determined by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.
You can view the proposal and see where it’s up to on the Planning Department’s Major Projects page.

The proposed plant would incinerate 165,000 tonnes of non-recyclable rubbish such as plastic, textiles and furniture each year to help power the Opal paper mill. The output would be a cocktail of toxins covering Sydney.
It’ll operative 24 hours a day and result in a stack 65m high located just 130 metres from people’s homes.
