The EPA has charged Barro with criminal offences under the Environment Protection Act 2017 (Vic) in respect of Barro’s operations at the Kealba landfill. As a result, this matter is now before the courts, and it is no longer appropriate for Barro to make any public comment in respect to the operations of the landfill.
Between late November 2023 and the end of January 2024, a drilling program will be carried out to enable monitoring of gas within the landfill. This is required to understand the status of the last remaining hotspot within the landfill. The drilling program is expected to last for approximately 35 business days. The gas monitoring is part of Barro’s continued efforts to remediate the last hotspot.
The views of residents and talking with our community has been important to us, which is why we have letterboxed updates on remediation works, conducted Community Forums and participated in meetings with residents, as well as local and state government representatives since the commencement of remediation works.

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.”
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.
