The Tims Thicket Waste Management Facility is located approximately 15 km south of Mandurah. The Site covers an area of 28 hectares. The Site has been in operation since 1995.
The proposal seeks to recommence acceptance of liquid waste at the facility by implementing a suite of improvements, including refurbishing and repurposing the existing infrastructure. The proposed design capacity is up to 6500 kL of liquid waste per year, consisting of septage and grease trap waste.
Why We Are Consulting
At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.
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 EPA's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
