Colliers International to lease 11,000sqm facility in Canning Vale
Changes to the processing regime at the Canning Vale recycling complex operated by the Southern Metropolitan Regional Council has created a surplus waste recycling facility that is now being offered for lease.
The 11,000sqm facility at the Regional Resource Recovery Centre was previously used to compost waste from residential rubbish bins from four of the five local governments behind the SMRC and includes recycling technology that may suit an incoming tenant.
The Bannister Road property will be taken to market via an expressions of interest campaign by Colliers International’s Greg O’Meara who said there would be strong interest from the industrial sector.
“This property will test the market for the recycling industry as well as other industrial tenants who are looking for a prime location in Canning Vale which has good access to Fremantle Port and Perth’s major arterial roads,” Mr O’Meara said.
“It would be suitable for a resource recovery businesses and with the removal of the recycling technology, it could also accommodate other industrial users."
The property is next to the Swan Transit Depot and on the doorstep of the Canning Vale industrial area.
The SMRC, which is responsible for delivering innovative and sustainable waste management solutions, established the $100 million Regional Resource Recovery Centre in 2003.
“A new processing regime has freed-up space and by leasing the facility, a financial benefit can be delivered to the cities of Fremantle and Melville, and the Town of East Fremantle,” SMRC Chief Executive Tim Youé said.
“This facility would be ideal for either one tenant in the resource recovery industry or as an ecology park or a green incubator to multiple tenants as this would fit with the ethos of the Regional Council.
“If an incoming tenant requires odour controls, the bio-filter and humidification equipment can be left in place as it’s in good condition and adds value to the property.”
