Latest update

Works approval granted

Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) has approved a works approval application from Greencare Environmental Solutions Pty Ltd for a small-scale consolidation of specialised, low volume prescribed industrial waste facility at Campbellfield. The waste is collected from industrial and educational facilities, stored, and consolidated, before being sent off-site to another EPA licensed facility for reuse.

On 8 May 2020, EPA received a Works Approval application from Greencare Environmental Solutions Pty Ltd seeking approval to construct a facility for Prescribed Industrial Waste (PIW) management. The proposed PIW facility can store up to 40 tonnes of waste under the control of the qualified industrial chemist operators. There is no treatment of the waste on-site.

EPA did not receive any submissions when the proposal was advertised.

The works approval was subject to conditions for the approval of a Fire Protection Report and Environment Management Plan prior to the commissioning of the facility.

The works approval is available to view in the 'Supporting documents' section of this page.
