Remediation activity at the site is continuing to focus on Hotspot#1, with the core now having been partially exposed. For regular updates on works’ activity visit our facebook page by clicking the link at the top right hand corner of this page.
The next online Community Forum will be held on Wednesday September 7, 2022. To join the meeting use this link https://bit.ly/3tnAPJn Community Forums will be held on the first Wednesday of each month at 8PM. If there are particular issues you would like to discuss, you can fill out the ‘contact us’ form on this site in advance of the meeting.
To listen to a recording of the most recent Community Forum, which was held on Wednesday 3 August see below.
A misting machine is in operation to help mitigate the type of odour that might be discernible beyond the boundary of the site depending, in part on weather conditions. Details of the masking-neutralising agent can be found here.

The views of residents and talking with our community is important to us, which is why we have letterboxed updates on remediation works, conducted Community Forums and participated in meetings with resident, as well as local and state government representatives since the commencement of remediation works. We will continue to talk with resident and government representatives because we are committed to transparency and openness.

Activity throughout August will be focussed on the commencement of efforts to extinguish the core of Hotspot#1. The bulk of material still to be extracted is warm to hot waste, which will need to be placed on the laydown pad for cooling before transfer to the receiving cell. This material will have a predominantly burnt/charcoal odour.
All material will be treated with an odour masking/neutralising agent as it is excavated and after it has been placed on the Laydown Pad. Details of the misting and neutralising agent being used can be found here.
Infrastructure in the area where Hotspot#4 was previously located has been restored and is now subject to auditor verification and approval from the Environment Protection Authority.
A Human Health Risk Assessment to predict whether chemicals in the air could be responsible for odour or result in short-term or long-term health effects is available. The Assessment is not a health study monitoring specific individual health responses in the community.

Air Quality during the Remediation Works is being monitored through a range of measures and which are approved by the Environment Protection Authority.
Air Quality testing undertaken by Sunshine Landfill is independently analysed, verified and shared with the EPA, which states that “air quality monitoring has found no issues of concern with respect to human health to date and it expects there will continue to be no health impacts.”
A range of factors can influence odour levels beyond the site boundary, including cold temperature inversions, extreme heat, rainfall, and wind direction. They can also be influenced when waste that is buried deeply, is older and hotter is exposed because of excavation being undertaken as part of remediation works.
Air quality is measured against four key substances, which are carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and volatile organic compounds, which are a group of carbon-based chemicals that easily evaporate.
