Clarinda

Our Application to Continue Clarinda Recycling Facility Operations

Almost every Victorian has driven on a ‘green road’, built from materials recycled by Alex Fraser.

Alex Fraser supplies recycled construction materials to projects including the Level Crossing Removal Projects, Monash Freeway Upgrade, Thompsons Road Upgrade, and the Hallam Road Upgrade. It is also ideally located to supply the planned Suburban Rail Loop, South Eastern Roads Upgrade, and Mordialloc Freeway.

Alex Fraser has asked Kingston City Council to extend the operating permit for its Clarinda Recycling Facility so it can continue to provide one million tonnes a year of recycled resources to major infrastructure projects in Melbourne’s south east.

Kingston City Council Decision Undermines Victoria’s Circular Economy

Kingston City Council has denied a second application by Alex Fraser Group to extend the life of its recycling operations at Clarinda, despite the clear implications on resource recovery in Victoria.

The Clarinda Recycling Facility has the capacity to recycle up to one million tonnes every year, turning recyclables into sustainable construction materials. In 2020, it will increase its recycling by 200 million bottles per year, including glass from Kingston kerbside collections.

Kingston City Council Decision will have Consequences for Entire State

Alex Fraser Group is calling on Premier Daniel Andrews to urgently intervene, following a decision by Kingston City Council which could see Victoria’s recycling crisis worsen, and drag on for years to come.

Kingston City Council last night denied an application by Alex Fraser Group, to extend the life of its recycling operations at Clarinda.
