An industrial cleaning supply factory in Western Sydney’s inner-west may soon have a dive bomb in its future.
Industrial cleaning supplies giant PwC has bought the land that houses the factory from an environmentalist who has been lobbying the NSW government to make the property an industrial park.
The site, a former factory that was decommissioned in 2016, has been used as a dump site for waste since the 1980s.
The company is building a huge factory on the site that will be a large industrial cleaning operation.
A spokesperson for the Pwc Group, which owns the factory, said the company was “actively looking to secure a site suitable for a new facility”.
The spokesperson said the industrial cleaning supplies company had previously expressed interest in developing the site, but was waiting to be convinced about the potential for an industrial site before deciding what to do with it.
“We are now actively looking to acquire land and develop an industrial clean-up site on the adjacent site, including an industrial floor,” the spokesperson said.
“A final decision on whether to redevelop the site will be made by Pwcs Group.”
The company will be conducting an extensive public consultation to gather feedback on potential locations, including whether to develop on land adjacent to the site.
“All sites are subject to an extensive environmental impact assessment and approval process.”
There will be ongoing monitoring and monitoring of the site in accordance with the applicable environmental laws and regulations.
“The spokesperson also said the project was not in the “final stages” of planning and that “significant costs” would be incurred.”
Construction of the factory and the adjacent industrial floor will be carried out over the next two to three years,” the company said.
The spokesman did not say whether the project would involve the company building on the land already owned by environmentalist Elizabeth Mazzocchi.
Mazzocsi, who is not connected to Pwca, has previously criticised the NSW Environmental Protection Agency for not protecting the site from industrial pollution, including industrial waste.
She said her group had been trying to reach the NSW Government for the last five years to make it an industrial area.”
It’s been a long, long time.
The company’s plans to build on the landfill are not the only one that has attracted opposition.”
It’s a total dereliction of duty.”

The Pwcpwc factory was decomissioned in the 1980’s, but has not been used since then, but Pwcc’s plans have sparked a number of public hearings.
In 2015, the government was forced to suspend work on the project.
“The industrial cleaning industry is a vital part of NSW’s economy and we hope to provide a significant boost to jobs and businesses in the region,” a spokesperson for NSW Environmental Minister Rob Stokes said at the time.
“This facility is an important and important piece of the wider plan for industrial cleaning and it’s very important we have a strong industrial clean up site in the state.”
