EPA update regarding Stawell tyre stockpile

10 Aug 2017

Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) has received notice that an application will be heard in the Supreme Court that seeks to halt efforts to remove an estimated one million tyres stockpiled at a site on Saleyards Road, Stawell.

Until such notice is received, EPA will continue to focus on preparation works to begin removing the tyre stockpile to ensure the safety of the people of Stawell and the surrounding communities.

These works commenced today as it is EPA’s view that the stockpile appears to have been abandoned or is being handled in a manner by the owners that is likely to cause an environmental hazard.
