What it contains

Landfill Operations Pty Ltd (a wholly owned subsidiary of Cleanaway Waste Management Ltd) has proposed an extension of the Melbourne Regional Landfill. The proposed extension requires a works approval from Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) under the Environment Protection Act 1970. The extension also needs a planning permit from the Minister for Planning under the Melton Planning Scheme. EPA’s assessment of a works approval application is separate to the planning permit assessment process. On 29 February 2016, EPA received a works approval application (WA1002191) from Landfill Operations for the Melbourne Regional Landfill. On 24 March 2017, EPA issued a works approval for a landfill significantly smaller than what was proposed by Landfill Operations.
