The residents are opposed to Benedict’s proposed $4.5 millionrecycling plant on Anderson Road,Smeaton Grange, which is on exhibition for community feedback until August 26.

The proposed site would process a variety of material including, glass, metal, rubber andpaper, but would not accept hazardous materials including asbestos.

Resident spokeswomanChris Harrissaid the meeting with Benedict’s general manager Ian Collier, representatives from NSW Planning and Environment, the Environmental Protection Authority and Camden MP Chris Patterson was informative and constructive.

“The meeting helped to clarify information about myths and facts about the application,” she said.

“[Our] primary concerns regarding the proposed facility will be the potential impact on surrounding neighbours, business and schools.

“If the proposal is approved it is important that residents and business have had the opportunity to list their concerns.”

Mr Collier was also pleased with the meeting and was glad to have a chance to answer resident questions.

“It was a very, very constructive meeting and it gave us an opportunity to respond to resident concerns and take them on board,” he said.

Mr Collier said it was important for residents to remember that Benedict was not new to the recycling business and had plenty of experience at other sites.

He said the company would look into whatever adjustments could plausibly be made to the proposal to meet relevant resident concerns.

Mr Patterson said he also had some concerns with the proposal “as it stands” and would like to see “a number of issues” addressed.

He said any resident who is concerned with the development should contact him or make a submission.
