Remediation of Landfill Site, Lot 20 Adelaide Street, Hazelmere

Closed 6 Aug 2014

Opened 31 Jul 2014


The Site is approximately 16.9 ha and is proposed to be remediated and regenerated.

It was previously mined for building and construction sands and was later used as a licensed “inert” landfill.  It has been reported that non-approved waste streams were disposed of at the Site.

In October 2010 following a compliance inspection the Site was classified “Contaminated – Remediation Required” under Section 13 of the Contaminated Sites Act 2003

The proponent is proposing to redevelop the area by remediating the Site via excavation and repackaging of materials, this will be soils and inert materials.  The project is expected to take four to five years to complete.

What happens next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The Chairman's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
