Its names says it all, where the 2.3ha site has been decontaminated where possible, substantially filled with imported fill to new levels. Considerable retaining walls constructed to the site perimeter assisting with the changed topography. Extensive access roading for heavy transport movement & with a 50m x 75m portal frame transfer house, where our rubbish is spread & compacted for further transport to Land fill sites beyond Auckland.

There is a purpose built administrative office straddling a major sewer line with staff car parking for 38 vehicles.
