The Brooklyn Industrial Precinct is in Melbourne’s western suburbs. It is home to more than 60 businesses These include: 

  • recycling sites 
  • abattoirs 
  • tallow producers  
  • landfills. 

Many of the businesses in the industrial precinct produce odours and dust. We have been monitoring the area for odour since 2008. We have collected information on small particles in the air (which includes dust) since 2009. 

You can get more information about local industry from the Brooklyn Community Representative Group. It provides information to the community. EPA provides support for their open house days and community meetings. These events provide the opportunity for the community, councils, government agencies and industry to come together.
