General Manager's Report

ITEM 8.2      SF674              150611         Coffs Coast Waste Services Processing and Resource Recovery Operations - Proposed Variation to Contract

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:     Michael Coulter, General Manager         

 

Summary:

 

To seek endorsement of Council to proceed with a variation to the Coffs Harbour Regional Resource Recovery Project Contract to modify waste processing and resource recovery operations.  This is in response to recent amendments to the Protection of the Environment Operations (Waste) Regulation 2005 and Exemption provisions that have introduced more stringent requirements in regard to organic outputs derived from mixed waste.

 

This report is being presented to Coffs Coast Waste Services partners for consideration, being Nambucca Shire Council, Bellingen Shire Council and Coffs Harbour City Council, to the meetings of 16, 22 and 23 June 2011 respectively.

 

It is recommended that Council accept the proposed option 1 being to upgrade the biomass plant and manufacture product to meet requirements of the waste exemption.

 

Option 1 appears to offer –

 

·      the best value for money with the lowest net present value,

·      the best sustainability outcome with the prospect of improving resource recovery, securing markets, meeting the conditions of the Specific Exemption, and minimising the amount of waste destined for landfill disposal; and

·      the best socio/political outcome by maintaining the dual line approach to waste processing, maintaining faith with and by the community and continuing to pursue the vision of Coffs Coast Waste Services.

 

Acceptance of option 1 will not increase Council’s waste charges in 2011/2012, although it will increase waste processing costs in future years.  Balanced against this is that the three Councils will avoid a greater proportion of the NSW Government’s waste levy which is payable on all waste disposed to landfill.  The rate for the 2011/2012 financial year is set at $31.10 per tonne, however it is rising cumulatively at the rate of CPI + $10 each year until 2015/16.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That subject to:

 

(a)  Coffs Harbour City Council (CHCC)resolving to vary Contract No 03/04-147-TS between CHCC and the Waste Processing Contractor (WPC) as set out in the confidential attachment to this Report entitled “Outline of provisions to be included in deed varying Contract No 03/04-147-TS Between Coffs Harbour City Council and Biomass Solutions (Coffs Harbour) Pty Limited (WPC)” (the Resolution);and

(b)  Bellingen Shire Council consenting in writing, pursuant to the Deed executed by CHCC on 7 November 2005 and by Bellingen Shire Council on 2 December 2005 and by Council on 21 July 2004 (the Deed), to CHCC implementing the Resolution and

(c)  Westpac Banking Corporation ABN 79 007 457 141 consenting in writing to CHCC implementing the Resolution; and

(d)  The Guarantors to Contract No 03/04-147-TS between Council and Biomass Solutions (Coffs Harbour) Pty Limited ABN 37 101 675 165 (WPC) consenting in writing to CHCC implementing the Resolution;

 

Council resolve, pursuant to the Deed, to consent in writing to Coffs Harbour City Council implementing the Resolution.

 

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

Council’s options are limited to the extent that our waste management service is a joint waste collection and recycling contract derived from a tripartite agreement between Coffs Harbour City Council, Bellingen Shire Council and Nambucca Shire Council.  Therefore Council is not really in a position to act unilaterally but rather must work in agreement or consensus with the other councils.

 

A preferable governance arrangement would be for a single authority to be responsible.  As it stands Council is responsible to its ratepayers for the waste service but in reality does not have effective control over significant variations to the contracts or the administration of the contract generally.

 

Even though Council has been provided with little notice of the required contract variation, it has been advised that deferral of the contract variation beyond 30 June will result in additional costs being borne by all of the Councils.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

Coffs Harbour City Council, Bellingen Shire Council and Nambucca Shire Council operate in partnership to deliver joint waste management services and resource recovery operations under the banner Coffs Coast Waste Services (CCWS).

 

The partnership is reinforced by a Tripartite Agreement between the three Councils, and a joint waste collection and recycling contract.

 

Following on from a briefing for Councillors and staff from the three Councils which was held at the England’s road waste facility last Thursday 9 June 2011, the following report has been prepared by staff of Coffs Harbour City Council for the consideration of Nambucca Shire Council.

 

CCWS provides a three-bin domestic waste collection service for organics including food waste, recyclables, and mixed waste, and processing of these streams at a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and an Alternate Waste Treatment (AWT) facility to produce beneficial products.

 

In 2005 Coffs Harbour City Council entered into the contract with Biomass Solutions (Coffs Harbour) Pty Ltd for processing organics, mixed waste and biosolids. At the same time the three Councils entered into a Tripartite Agreement that effectively binds the parties to that contract and joint waste management services for twenty years.

 

The Biomass Solutions AWT facility was commissioned in two stages:

 

Stage one – Processing of streamed Organics commenced March 2007

Stage two – Processing of streamed Mixed waste commenced January 2008

 

Under the waste processing contract streamed organics that includes food waste, green waste and biosolids are shredded and processed via an agitated composting bay process, and subsequently screened and mixed as necessary to produce “A” Grade compost that meets market and regulatory requirements. 

 

Streamed Mixed waste undergoes a process involving primary manual and mechanical sorting, autoclaving, secondary mechanical and manual separation of output fractions to produce recyclables, a screened organic fraction for reuse, and residual waste that is destined for landfilling. 

 

The sterilised organic fraction generally undergoes composting in the agitated bay system, followed by screening and mixing with other products as necessary to produce a product that met the then prevailing Biosolids Guidelines. 

 

The Coffs Coast Waste Services domestic waste collection and processing operations were achieving outstanding rates of resource recovery as shown in the following OEH graph that shows performance relative to the NSW target.

 

Note: Nambucca’s figures which are similar to Coffs and Bellingen were not included due to a technical glitch.

 

 

On 24 April 2008, the NSW Government introduced amendments to the Protection of the Environment Operations (Waste) Regulation 2005 which took effect on 28 April 2008.  The amendments, required, inter alia, that wastes including any products produced from wastes must not be used without the benefit of a relevant General or Specific Exemption pursuant to Part 6, Clause 51 and 51A, of the Protection of the Environment Operations (Waste) Regulation 2005.

 

These changes created turmoil in the waste processing and resource recovery industry across NSW.  Numerous AWT plants and Councils throughout NSW were affected and contracts for new AWT facilities were put on hold.

 

In January 2010, Coffs Harbour City Council, Nambucca Shire Council and Bellingen Shire Council submitted an Issues Paper to Hon. Frank Sartor, Minister for Climate Change and the Environment. The Issues Paper highlighted the significant concerns of the councils and urged the Minister to take decisive action.

 

In April 2010 the NSW Government released the “The organic outputs derived from mixed waste general exemption” pursuant to the Protection of the Environment Operations (Waste) Regulation 2005 – General Exemption under Part 6, Clause 51 and 51A.

 

The long awaited General Exemption introduced much more stringent requirements with respect to the use of AWT organic outputs for land application in terms of: processor and consumer responsibilities, chemical and other material concentrations, types of agricultural use, application rates and buffers, and sampling and testing requirements.

 

The effect of this legislation was to significantly change the goal posts in respect to the processing of mixed waste and utilisation of beneficial organics.

 

However the General Exemption remained unworkable for Biomass Solution’s waste processing operations due to the particular characteristics of the Coffs Coast Waste Services operations, the plant design and markets.  A more workable “Specific Exemption” was sought and after protracted negotiations the then NSW Department of Environment, Climate Change & Water issued the “Protection of the Environment Operations (Waste) Regulation 2005 – Specific Exemption under Part 6, Clause 51 and 51A -  The Coffs Harbour CCRRF organic outputs derived from mixed waste exemption 2011 which came into effect on 28 March 2011.

 

It should be noted that the regulatory changes do not significantly impact upon the processing and use of organics which includes material collected in the green lidded bins, nor biosolids that are delivered to the plant from sewage treatment plants.  The changes primarily concern the processing of mixed waste which includes the material collected in red lidded bins.

 

Options to Satisfy New Requirements

 

The relevant new legal requirements that are expressed under “The Coffs Harbour CCRRF organic outputs derived from mixed waste exemption 2011” introduce much more rigorous requirements than previously applied in respect to:

 

-     physical and other contaminant levels of mixed waste organics that can be land applied

-     the types of agricultural and non agricultural uses of such products

-     the application rates per hectare

-     testing and reporting requirements.

 

Biomass Solutions has been conducting testing, trials, plant design work, financial and marketing analysis to explore reconfiguration options that would satisfy the new requirements.  In this regard Biomass Solutions was requested to provide detailed information of three options and cost implications for consideration by the Councils.  These options are:

 

Option 1:     Upgrade the plant and manufacture product to meet requirements of the Exemption;

Option 2:     Mothball the mixed waste processing line and direct the mixed waste to landfill; and

Option 3:     Mothball the mixed waste processing line, implement limited recovery of recyclables, bale the waste and direct the waste to landfill.

 

Option 1

 

Under this option the Biomass facility would be modified to permit the manufacture of products that meet the conditions of the Specific Exemption.  This option will require significant capital investment in new plant and higher mixed waste processing costs.

 

The solution offered includes provision for:

 

·      significantly improved up-front sorting of in-feed waste to remove deleterious materials before the processing commences,

·      enhanced screening with further contaminant removal and recovery of inorganic recyclables mid-process,

·      a size reduction step for coarse material, in particular glass, that will remain in the output organics stream,

·      co-composting of the organic fraction with biosolids and fresh organic waste from the source separated side of the facility,

·      new quality control and monitoring systems and protocols, and

·      a full-service deliver and apply scheme for the application of product to land.

 

Option 2

 

Under this option, the mixed waste side of the facility is shut down and placed on a care and maintenance schedule, with mixed waste delivered direct to landfill. 

 

The proposal allows for close down of the mixed waste side of the facility with periodic operation of the autoclave and associated equipment to maintain the facility in reasonable working order.  Some key staff are to be retained for the care and maintenance operations, but no substantive efforts are made at recovering products from the mixed waste stream, which is instead directed straight to landfill disposal.

 

In the event that regulatory provisions and or market and technology conditions become more favourable, if ever, the plant could be reactivated at a later date. 

 

Option 3

 

Under this option, the mixed waste side of the facility is shut down and placed on a care and maintenance schedule as above, the mixed waste is baled and then delivered to landfill.  The option requires capital injection for baling operations but will achieve higher compaction densities of product that is destined for landfill with consequent savings in landfill space and transport.

 

Analysis of Options

 

As requested, Biomass Solutions provided detailed process flow information and financial models to assist in the evaluation of Options over the balance of the contract. The models took into account such factors as the

 

·      Processing Charges – based on tonnes processed

·      Availability Charges (in respect to capital costs)

·      Section 88 Waste Levies

·      Waste stream growth

·      Consumer Price Index increases

·      Landfill costs

·      Transport Costs

·      Compaction densities

 

Chartered accountants Davies Knox Maynards were engaged to independently review Biomass’s financial models for the three options put forward and to determine whether these have been correctly costed.

 

Davies Knox Maynards concluded inter alia:

 

“The audit work undertaken confirmed the conclusions from the original Biomass Solutions costing that option 1 was clearly the lowest cost option over the years forecast from 2011 to 2027.

Whilst a significant number of adjustments were made to the various costings and spreadsheets, the overall conclusion remained the same whether the costs are expressed in absolute dollar terms, or if discounted back to today’s dollars using the council supplied cost of capital of 7.5%pa.”

 

Consultant, Wright Corporate Strategy was engaged to prepare an overall assessment of the Biomass options going forward.  The consultant was instructed to take into account the NSW Government’s new “Reducing Waste: Implementation Strategy 2011-2015”, technology and regulatory risks as well as the financial, environmental and social sustainability of options over the remaining term of the waste processing contract.

 

The consultant was also asked to benchmark Biomass’s waste processing costs and practices against other similar operations that exist or are proposed.

 

Wright Corporate Strategy concluded inter alia:

 

“This review recommends that Coffs Coast Waste Services clearly signal to Biomass Solutions a desire to press ahead with the Option 1 proposal, provided that resolutions can be determined on:

·      the costing assumptions in the proposal,

·      the level of down payment / deposit paid for the capital expenses, and

·      a mechanism for sharing risk and reward effects from future changes in markets, changes in regulations and changes in technology and process that might benefit the parties.”

 

The consultant’s recommendations as dot pointed above have been addressed in the terms of the proposal now presented to Council for consideration.

 

Option 1 “appears to offer –

·      the best value for money with the lowest net present value,

·      the best sustainability outcome with the prospect of improving resource recovery, securing markets, meeting the conditions of the Specific Exemption, and minimising the amount of waste destined for landfill disposal; and

·      the best socio/political outcome by maintaining the dual line approach to waste processing, maintaining faith with and by the community and continuing to pursue the vision of Coffs Coast Waste Services;”

 

With respect to benchmarking Biomass’s current and proposed revised waste processing costs against other similar operations that exist or are proposed, Wright Corporate Strategy advise, inter alia:

 

“Comparing these benchmark indicative costs it is apparent that:

·      the current fully inclusive gate fee (processing plus availability charges) per tonne of mixed waste sent to the Biomass facility is in the order of one third of the fully inclusive gate fees apparent in the Sydney metropolitan market; and

·      with the addition of the capital and operating cost increases associated with the Option 1 response from Biomass Solutions, the proposed fully inclusive gate fee is in the order of two thirds that currently apparent in the Sydney metropolitan market.

 

On the basis of this comparison, it is reasonable to conclude that with the proposed modifications and attainment of the conditions set out in the Specific Exemption, the Coffs Coast Waste Services parties are receiving good value for money.”

 

If required a copy of each of the above consultant’s confidential reports is available from the General Manager for review by Councillors.

Related Policy and / or Precedents:

 

The undertaking by the three councils to implement this integrated waste resource recovery system has been driven by NSW Policy and regulatory framework, including the Section 88 Waste Levy and the NSW Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy (updated 2007), excerpts of which are:

 

“Achieving a reduction in waste generation, and turning waste into recoverable resources is a priority for NSW” - NSW Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy.

 

“Regulatory mechanisms such as the waste and environment levy help drive waste avoidance and resource recovery by providing an economic incentive to reduce waste disposal and stimulate alternative waste technologies.” - NSW Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy.

 

The Coffs Coast Waste Services operations and proposed upgrade of mixed waste processing operations accords with the NSW Government’s “Reducing Waste: Implementation Strategy 2011-2015”. 

Legal Considerations:

 

Coffs Harbour City Council entered into the contract with Biomass Solutions (Coffs Harbour) Pty Ltd for the Coffs Harbour Regional Resource Recovery Project.  Bellingen Shire Council and Nambucca Shire Council are party to the scheme by way of a binding Tripartite Agreement. 

 

With respect to the change in laws that has occurred MBT lawyers who have been acting on behalf of the Councils have provide the attached advice. Refer the following extract:

 

“The WPC contends it can produce organic outputs derived from the MRW delivered to the CCRRF that will comply with the 2011 Exemption provided the Plant there is modified and upgraded. The modification and upgrade will result in the imposition of increased Availability Charges and Processing Charges.

 

The increases in Availability Charges and Processing Charges are a direct result of the 28 April 2008 amendments of the Protection of the Environment Operations (Waste) Regulation 2005 and the Advice from Senior Counsel that “The biosolids exemption 2008” does not assist. Thus the increased costs arise from a relevant change in the law and these costs must be borne by Council.”

 

Adoption of Option 1 as a way forward will require a variation of the contract, the principle elements of which are outlined in the confidential attachment.

Issues:

·      It should be emphasized that workable General Exemptions are in place with regard to the Biomass’s Organics and Biosolids streams. The current upgrade proposal only pertains to Biomass’s mixed waste processing stream.

 

·      If and when the Councils resolve to proceed with Option 1 to upgrade the plant to meet new legal requirements, Biomass advise that it would take 12 months to procure equipment and commission the new plant to fully process the mixed waste stream.  In the interim mixed waste would be processed to recover recyclables such as glass, aluminium, steel and hard plastics, but the organic rich fraction, reject and residual materials would go to landfill.  The plant will continue to process the Organics and Biosolids streams to produce high quality compost for beneficial use.

 

·      Further work is being undertaken by Council staff to refine the arrangements between the Councils with respect to the disposal of reject and residual waste and the apportionment of availability fees on a more equitable basis. 

 

·      Work has commenced to explore ways in which the Councils may better integrate waste management operations, to reduce administration and operational costs and provide for long term certainty regarding regional waste disposal options. This will be the subject of future reports to Council.

 

·      There are concerns that OEH may again change the goal posts at a future time. OEH and the industry are funding scientific studies that are being conducted over the next four years in respect to the land application of mixed waste organics. These studies may lead to strengthening or relaxation of requirements, although the signals from the Department indicate that the highly stringent requirements that have been introduced are unlikely to significantly strengthened in the foreseeable future. 

 

·      As a result of industry and local government input the OEH has reversed its position of resisting the use of AWT organics for power generation and is now preparing a Policy in favour of waste to energy. This may eventually open up opportunities to market Biomass’s refined mixed waste organics to supplement feedstock requirements at large and small scale power stations, such as the Broadwater Sugar Mill and Harwood Sugar Mill, or coal-fired power stations. 

 

·      Should the Councils defer resolution of this matter beyond 30 June 2011, Biomass Solutions have indicated that Option 1 would need to be recosted.  Fresh quotes would be required from suppliers, and adjustments would need to be made to prices to take into account consumer price index and construction index increases. In addition delays would push forward the commissioning date with consequent implications of additional mixed waste organics being directed to landfill and transport and NSW Waste Levy payments.   There are very significant costs that may arise from unnecessary delays in making a decision on this matter.

Implementation Date / Priority:

 

Once the Councils resolve to proceed with the recommended Option 1, Biomass have indicated that it will take up to 12 months to procure equipment, modify the plant and put in place the necessary operational and product marketing measures. Conditional upon resolution on this matter prior to June 30 2011, it is envisaged that the revised mixed waste processing system will be commissioned no later than 1 July 2012.   

 

 

CONSULTATION:

 

Coffs Harbour City Council has undertaken extensive consultation, discussions and high level meetings concerning the regulatory changes and related issues with the now Office of Environment & Heritage (OEH), the Waste Management Association of NSW and AWT industry players.

 

A workshop was held concerning this matter for the Mayors, Councillors and senior staff of the three Councils on Thursday 9th June 2011.

 

 

SUSTAINABILITY ASSESSMENT:

 

Environment

 

CCWS operations are designed to optimize recycling and resource recovery, beneficial reuse, and to minimise waste to landfill.

 

The recovery of mixed waste organics to produce compost for land application has environmental benefits in terms of soil carbon levels, soil fertility, improved agricultural outputs, rehabilitation of sites, and avoided carbon emissions.

 

The change in legal requirements and standards for processing and use of CCWS mixed waste has meant that the organic fraction has had to be landfilled in the interim until the plant can be upgraded to satisfy the new requirements.

 

Should Council proceed with Option 1, resource recovery rates will significantly increase and waste to landfill will decrease, as will landfill levy payments to the NSW government.

 

Recovery rates for the three bin Coffs Coast domestic waste stream would be restored to around 80%, the highest in NSW.

 

A key sustainability consideration is the carbon implications of the waste processing solution. The new waste processing under Option 1 will consume more electricity and therefore increase potential carbon emissions. However notwithstanding these impacts, the sustainability of the proposed way forward in Option 1 is considered superior to either of Options 2 or 3.

 

Social

 

The community has demonstrated strong support for recycling and resource recovery as is evident by the high levels of recycling and low levels of contamination in the domestic green bin and yellow bin service. 

 

Surveys have demonstrated high levels of satisfaction with CCWS and the recycling and resource recovery systems.

 

The Councils have invested in education programs over many years to increase community awareness and support for waste reduction, reuse and recycling. 

 

It is therefore important that Council continue to provide services and waste recycling and recovery to meet community expectations.


 

Economic

 

The recovery of waste resources including organics reduces the quantities of waste that are directed to landfill.  Landfilling is an expensive activity, more so since the introduction of the NSW governments Section 88 waste levy payment requirements.  Effective from July 2009 mid north coast and north coast councils are required to pay a waste levy to the NSW government for waste that is directed to landfill.  The rate for the 2011/2012 financial year is set at $31.10 per tonne.  Further, NSW statute provides that the Levy is to rise cumulatively at the rate of CPI + $10 each year until 2015/16.

 

Waste processing and the marketing and utilization of waste products generates local employment.

 

The legislative changes in relation to mixed waste are currently resulting in reusable materials wastefully going to landfill, and therefore causing higher waste disposal costs to the councils, and additional waste levy payments to the NSW Government.

 

Upgrading the plant to meet the new requirements as per Option 1 will significantly increase mixed waste processing costs but is the least expensive option overall over the balance of the contract.  Option 1 will minimise waste to landfill and waste levy payments to the NSW Government. 

 

Risk

 

There are many risks which have already been outlined and include:

 

·      continuing regulatory change which may adversely affect the Councils’ obligations under the contract

·      the inability of the contractor to deliver the outcomes required by the contract variation

 

Councils are obliged to provide sustainable waste services on behalf of their communities. 

 

It is important that the Bellingen, Nambucca and Coffs Harbour Councils continue to provide sustainable waste management services, recycling and resource recovery commensurate with community expectations.

 

The proposal to proceed with Option 1 as recommended is consistent with:

 

The Coffs Harbour 2030 Plan which includes a strategy (LE3.1.4) “Implement Programs which make the Coffs Coast region a zero waste community”

 

          It is also consistent with this Council’s mission to value and protect its natural environment.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS:

 

Direct and indirect impact on current and future budgets

 

The increased waste processing costs to meet the relevant Exemption will need to be recovered through fees and charges. Additional charges in respect to mixed waste that is collected under the Coffs Coast Waste Services domestic waste will need to be recouped from annual Waste Management Charges. Other product such as commercial mixed waste that is suitable for processing would be subject to higher gate charges.

 

For the purposes of estimating the impact on annual Waste Management Charges, it is important to note that the change in pricing does not apply to the organics collected in the green lidded bin, nor recyclables collected in the yellow lidded bin.  The price increase relates only to mixed waste collected in the red lidded bin.

 

Average quantities of mixed waste collected for each waste management service amounts to around 342 Kgs per annum.

 

During the 2011/12 financial year, there will be availability fees payable by the Councils in respect to the capital that is being expended up to the commissioning date. There will also be landfill levies and transport costs applicable in respect to the mixed waste organics that will need to be landfilled.

 

It has been estimated that this will require an increase of $13.70 per Waste Management Charge.  This increase has been accommodated in the Councils 2011/12 fees and charges and delivery and operational programs.

 

A one off 20% capital contribution which will fall due in July 2011 is to be apportioned between the Councils commensurate with number of garbage services as at 30 May 2011, being Coffs Harbour – 28994, Nambucca - 8007 and Bellingen 4168. 

 

The contributions will be approximately as follows:

 

Bellingen Shire Council –              $74, 000

Nambucca Shire Council –            $142,000

Coffs Harbour City Council –         $516,000

 

The upgraded plant will be commissioned on or before 1 July 2012, at which time the Councils will no longer be responsible for disposal of mixed waste organics which will be then used for beneficial purposes.  Thus NSW landfill levy obligations and disposal costs will decrease, and processing costs will increase.  At that time a further $18.30 increase would be required in the 2012/13 Waste Management Charges. 

 

No further extraordinary increases in processing costs are anticipated for the balance of the contract.

 

The 2012/13 Waste Management Charges will also need to accommodate the NSW Government’s Section 88 Waste Levy which will increase from $31.10 per tonne in 2011/12 to around $42 per tonne in 2012/13.

 

Nambucca Shire Council has sufficient funds in its domestic waste management reserve to pay for the one off 20% capital contribution of $142,000.  The 2011/12 budget has also made provision for an additional processing contingency of $96,600 which may or may not be required, depending upon the timing of the commissioning of the new plant.

 

Council has now been able to hold its domestic waste charge of $438 unchanged for the past 2 years and also for 2011/2012.  The 2010/2011 domestic waste charge and the proposed domestic waste charge for 2011/2012 for each of the 3 Councils is as follows:

 

 

2010/2011

2011/2012

Coffs Harbour

$345

$400

Bellingen

$438

$470

Nambucca

$438

$438

 

 

Source of fund and any variance to working funds

 

There is no impact on working funds.
