The Public Environmental Review (PER) prepared by the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council (EMRC) for the proposed Resource Recovery Facility at the Red Hill Waste Management Facility is still being assessed by the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA), together with comments received during the public review period. The EPA's report on their assessment is expected to be issued in April 2013.
The location for the RRF was changed from Lot 12 Toodyay Road to Lot 8 Toodyay Road in November 2012 (refer to http://www.emrc.org.au/per.html), and as such, this amended proposal is being assessed by the EPA.
As part of the Environmental Protection Authority's (EPA) requirements to gain environmental approval for the resource recovery facility, EMRC has prepared a Public Environmental Review (PER) document to examine the environmental and health impacts associated with the two technology options proposed for the facility.
This document was available for a public review period (23 July 2012 to 17 September 2012). The public comment period has now closed.
You can still view the PER document and find out the next steps in the environmental approvals process by visiting the PER webpage.
