​​​​​​The Prop​​osal

Treloar Transport Co. is proposing to increase the land area of an existing inert waste depot located at Forthside. The expanded land area will be used for sorting of recycling and construction materials for reuse, and for landfilling. There are no proposed changes to the annual quantities of waste received.

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