Soil and Organic Recycling Facility

Home / Commercial / General Information / Soil and Organic Recycling Facility /

The Soil and Organic Recycling Facility (SORF) treats and recycles liquid and solid prescribed waste from businesses. It is the first facility of its kind in Victoria, and reduces the amount of waste going to landfill.

The SORF gives businesses a sustainable waste management option to treat and recover prescribed and non-prescribed organic wastes and hydrocarbon contaminated soils, which can then be reused.

  • Tannery waste (K140 & D141)
  • Oily waters & triple interceptors (J120)
  • Industrial, car, truck & machinery wash waters (L100 & L150)

  • Contaminated soils (N119, N120, N121)
  • Drill muds
  • Biosolids
