LEADING waste and recycling provider SITA Australia has expanded its service offering for miners in NSW’s Hunter region and across Australia.
SITA’s mining and resources offering includes a diverse range of onsite and offsite waste management services, from transfer station management through to collection services, waste segregation, hazardous waste management, industrial services and mine site rehabilitation.

With a dedicated account management team providing comprehensive environmental and waste management audits, SITA helps mining operators identify the sources of waste generated at mine sites as well as opportunities for waste and cost reduction.

SITA business development manager for mining and resources Todd Armstrong said the company had built a strong reputation in Australia for implementing innovative and diversified solutions for the mining industry.

“We understand the technical and environmental challenges faced by mining operations,” he said.

“That’s why we offer cost-effective and practical waste management solutions tailored to our mining customers’ unique needs.”

As one of Australia’s most experienced providers of advanced resource recovery technology solutions, Mr Armstrong said SITA also transformed organic waste collected from households and businesses into quality compost for use in mine site rehabilitation.

“We process organic waste into a range of composts, mulches and soils for use in the different stages of mine site rehabilitation such as landform reconstruction, topsoil management, transplanting, seeding and regeneration,” he said.

“In addition to providing an environmentally responsible alternative to chemical products, we help our customers return nutrients to the earth, promote future plant growth and ‘close the loop’ on resource usage.”
