NSW EPA on the warpath for illegal waste disposal practices

Published : 30 Nov, 2017

A recent news story reveals that the NSW EPA has been involved in 3 separate prosecutions regarding illegal waste dumping over the past year. One involves a waste recycling company who has allegedly exceeded their license for the volume of waste it can treat at a specific site.

The second involves a waste company illegally spreading contaminated mulch on farmland. This has since been removed from the farm.

The final case involved a construction company storing waste spoil from a road construction project on a neighbouring property without an appropriate license or DA.

These cases illustrate the reduced tolerance for illegal waste handling in NSW..
