Brimbank City Council manages closed Sunshine landfills. It’s working on the site’s long-term management and preventing environmental and health risks.
We’re supporting Brimbank City Council’s work on the site. We provide advice about:
- environmental public health risks
- our laws and actions
- planning matters.
Our enforcement role at closed Sunshine landfills
We gave the site a post-closure pollution abatement notice (PAN). A PAN is a direction from EPA to stop or manage pollution. To comply, Brimbank City Council must make sure the site doesn’t present a risk to human health or the environment. This means Brimbank City Council must:
- monitor the site and report to us
- do further testing of gas, vapour, soil and groundwater.
We’re working to make sure Brimbank City Council complies with this notice and will comply with any future notices.
