Veolia Environmental Services have received a substantial fine from the Environment Protection Authority for not meeting requirements on leachate management at its Tarago site

 

The $15,000 fine is for failing to meet the submission deadline for a component of the Long-term Leachate Management strategy for the Woodlawn Bioreactor.

 

NSW EPA says the Woodlawn bioreactor is a key component of waste infrastructure, but has a long history of odour and leachate issues.

 

To address these, the EPA negotiated with Veolia to commit to a long term strategy which was formalised as a series of pollution studies and pollution reduction programmes.

One member of the Goulburn Mulwaree Council is not happy with the decision to continue with membership of the representative group, Local Government NSW.

 

Membership of the body has been under the Goulburn Mulwaree council microscope but this week's meeting of councillors decided to extend its association for another year.

 

Councillor Sam Rowland described Local Government NSW as ineffective and says paying the annual fee of $38,000 is a waste of money.
