The project

Flexible Australia Pty Ltd propose to develop a waste recovery facility in Hume. The proposed facility will process and recycle waste from street sweeping, stormwater maintenance and hydro excavation (mud) activities. The site is expected to receive approximately 19,400 tonnes of material per annum.

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 scoping document has now been issued by the planning and land authority for this project (EIS201900010) which outlines the matters to be addressed in the EIS.

Public consultation

Flexible Australia Pty Ltd is currently preparing a draft EIS to address each matter raised in the scoping document. In accordance with the Planning and Development Act 2007, the draft EIS will be publicly notified here for a minimum of 20 working days once lodged. The public will have an opportunity to view the proposal and make representations at that stage and the proponent is required to address comments on the draft EIS in a revised EIS.
