​​​​The Proposal

Dulverton Regional Waste Management Authority has proposed to establish an organics recycling facility using in-vessel composting to produce up to 25,000 tonnes of compost per year.​

The proponent has lodged a Permit Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to Longford 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. 

​Environmental Effects Report

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.
