Plans for a new depot to be used to recycle construction materials have been submitted to Wodonga Council for approval.
Complete Civil Construction Services, a business registered as having its base in Sunbury, lodged the planning permit application last week to build on industrial land on Whytes Road in Baranduda.
The two lots have a combined size of 2.43 hectares and are located in the Baranduda Industrial Estate, 6.5 kilometres from Wodonga.
They are currently vacant, but have vegetation that would have to be removed.
“It is intended to establish the site as a depot for storage or machinery and materials associated with a civil contracting business," the application stated.
"Salvage materials including asphalt and concrete are to be stored on the property and processed for reuse in new civil works within Wodonga and local surrounds.”
Plans include a large 70x10-metre shed, open storage and salvage material space with a height capacity of three metres.
“The central portion of lot 32 will be used for storage and processing of rock and other recovered materials. Two separate stockpiles comprising concrete and asphalt material will be established in the southern portion of the site,” the plan stated.
“The stockpiles will contain only raw materials and as such have a lower likelihood of dust emissions or sediment runoff during unloading and general storage periods.”
The company proposed to process about 7000 cubic metres of materials each year for recycling, using concrete or asphalt crushers, which would take place about once per month.
Wodonga Council has put the application out for public comment until March 21.
