Waste and resource recovery[edit]

Wingfield is the site of the 94ha Wingfield Waste & Recycling Centre, formerly owned and operated by the Adelaide City Council,[1] and now operated as a "collaborative cluster of commercial businesses" including Orora, Adelaide Resource Recovery, Jeffries Group and Transpacific Industries.[2] Between 1952 and 2004, the Wingfield site was operated as a landfill dump. Since 2004 it has become a waste and recycling transfer centre, with all waste being sorted into recyclable products or waste products. The waste is compacted and transferred to other landfill sites north of Adelaide, at Dublin and Inkerman.

Motorsport[edit]

Wingfield is home to Australia's only dedicated junior Motorcycle speedway track, the Sidewinders Speedway. The 112 metres (122 yd) long track was opened in 1978 by the Sidewinders U/16 Speedway Club which had formed in 1976.
