Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) has received an application for a development licence from Visy Industries Australia Pty Ltd, to expand their glass recycling operation at Laverton.
Visy is proposing to upgrade the glass recycling facility at 46-52 Dohertys Road, Laverton. They currently hold an operating licence for the prescribed activity and operate an existing glass works facility.
The new glass recycling plant is designed to process 40 tonnes of recyclable container glass per hour, replacing the existing plant that can process 24 tonnes per hour.
The new recycling plant will produce furnace ready recyclable container glass cullet used in the manufacturing of new glass containers.
Visy has also applied for a planning permit through Wyndham City Council for the proposed upgrade (reference WYP12855/21).
