​​​​The ​​Proposal

Break O'Day Council is proposing to construct and operate an inert landfill at the site of a former Level 2 putrescible landfill, which currently operates as a municipal waste transfer station.  The proposal is to accept up to 3,000 tonnes of inert waste per year, to be filled in cells and then capped.​​

The proponent has lodged a Permit Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to Break O'Day Council.

The application was referred to the Board of the Environment Protection Authority (the Board) for assessment under the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (EMPCA).

Public Exhibition of Documentation

A copy of the permit application and all plans and other documentation submitted with the permit application (including the EER) were made available for public inspection. The public consultation period has now closed.

Environment​​al Effects Report

The purpose of the EER is to provide a source of information upon which interested individuals, groups, government agencies and the Board may consider the environmental impacts of the proposal.

The EER was prepared by the proponent on the basis of the Project Specific Guidelines for preparation of an EER which were provided by the Board.​
