EPA calls community conference on Bannockburn composting proposal

Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) will hold a community conference at Bannockburn to discuss the proposal from Advanced Composting Technologies of Australasia Pty Ltd (ACTA) for a static pile composting plant.

The proposed plant would receive and process 50,000 cubic metres of organic waste a year into compost.

Since the company applied for EPA Works Approval in April, EPA has received 35 public submissions and one petition. Golden Plains Shire Council, which is considering a separate planning permission application, has received a further 11 submissions. The submissions received by EPA are available on the Engage Victoria website at https://engage.vic.gov.au/epa-works-approvals/advanced-composting-technologies-australasia-wa.
