State Government · EPA Recommends Approval Red Hill

The Environmental Protection Authority has recommended conditional approval for two technologies for processing municipal waste at the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Councilís Red Hill site.

EPA Chairman Paul Vogel said the proposed facility, located west of the existing waste site and about 1km from the nearest residence, would assist in diverting waste from landfill.

The EPA and the Waste Authority released a report in April this year, which concluded that modern waste-to-energy plants could operate within strict emission standards, and with acceptable environmental and health impacts, when well designed and operated using best-practice technologies and processes.

The EPAís report to the Minister for Environment is now open for a two-week public appeal period, closing August 5, 2013.
