I lived opposite the site until September 2017 so experienced the noise, dust and activities in the site from the day it opened. The creek I believe forms a kind of amphitheater and the noise inside my home was exaggerated. I used to be woken up at Seven am thinking there was someone rummaging around in my house. At first it was quite disturbing. Having windows open and being outdoors became unpleasant due to constant noise, I could not have a conversation with my neighbour. After making enquiries I saw them expand the site and use areas that I believed they had no right to use, using large equipment to move material when at best it was only meant for storage. I did witness the whole environment change, the birds stopped visiting the creek, the walkers stopped using it. The whole thing was very upsetting from day one. We do need recycling facilities but surely the people and the environment needs to be considered.
