The 14- hectare clean­fill, which will have a ca­pac­ity of 1.75 mil­lion cu­bic me­tres of rock and dirt, will re­place the Dry Creek Clean­fill.

Win­stone has ap­plied for three con­sents to the Hutt and Porirua city coun­cils, as well the re­gional coun­cil.

The clean­fill has an es­ti­mated life­span of 35 to 50 years and the land is zoned ru­ral. The site of the pro­posed clean­fill bor­ders SH58 and the re­gional park and is op­po­site Mt Ce­cil Rd.

Res­i­dents ar­gue the road al­ready has a high ac­ci­dent rate and that on fig­ures sup­plied by Win­stone there will be be­tween 88 and 518 truck move­ments a day.
