Materials recovery facility - Fyshwick - EIS application 201700053

The project

Capital Recycling Solutions Pty Ltd propose to develop a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) which will receive, sort, separate and export waste and recyclable material.

EIS process

The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) details the anticipated environmental impacts of a development, as well as proposing avoidance and mitigation measures. An EIS is prepared by a proponent to enable decision makers to understand the environmental consequences of a proposed development. The EIS is required to address matters raised in the scoping document for the proposal. Read more about the EIS process.

A draft EIS has now been lodged for this project. The application number for this draft EIS is EIS201700053.
