Clean-up of the historic former sawmill site

Great to support the local Batlow community in this major clean-up of the historic former sawmill site.

We were engaged by client the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (Crown Lands) to remove about 10,000 cubic metres of sawdust from the former mill site - enough to fill four Olympic swimming pools!!

The sawmill dates back to the 1950s and has been dormant since the 1980s. Cleaning up the legacy site will help restore 7,500 square metres of Crown land so it can once again be used by the Batlow community.

As an added benefit we've been able to secure nursery and soil providers to #recycle the material into products and save more landfill and tipping fees.

Crown Lands is now scoping future work on the site.
