The landfill in Tullamarine operated from 1973 until it closed in 2008. At the time it was the only hazardous waste landfill in Victoria. During its operating life, it received both solid and liquid wastes.
Cleanaway had the licence to operate the landfill when it closed in 2008.
When the landfill closed, EPA issued Cleanaway with a post-closure pollution abatement notice.
