Landfill Operations Pty Ltd trading as Melbourne Regional Landfill (part of the Cleanaway group) in Ravenhall has been handed a $20,000 at the Broadmeadows Magistrates Court after the company failed to notify EPA Victoria of non-compliance and breaches of its licence at the site.
Landfill Operations pleaded guilty to two charges encompassing a total of five licence breaches of section 27(2) of the Environment Protection Act 1970 – three licence breaches for failing to notify EPA of noncompliance and two for failing to limit the tip face size stipulated within its license conditions.
Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) brought the action after multiple reports from the local community of odour issues from the Landfill Operations site.
The court did not record a conviction but also ordered Landfill Operations to pay EPA’s court costs of $7,344.
