No to Clayton South tip extension - Council - News - Moorabbin Leader

No to Clayton South tip extension - Council - News - Moorabbin Leader: "Transpacific Industries landfill in Fraser Rd, Clayton South - which the EPA in February threatened with daily fines of up to $134,000 if it didn’t clean up its act - wanted its permit extended by 10 years.

But Kingston councillors vetoed TPI’s request last Tuesday night.

The 17-year-old tip (known as TPI Fraser Rd or TPI Osborne Ave) accepts general kerbside collections (food and green waste), industrial and construction solid inert waste, quarantine waste, cleanfill and tyres.

It has been one of the worst in Kingston for odour breaches, particularly in recent months following high rainfall.

Cr Arthur Athanasopolous said he and his colleagues agreed with council officers that times had changed and smelly tips should no longer operate near residential areas.

“We’d like to see it closed and the land rehabilitated,” he said.

“The standards that tips operated under 20 years are just unacceptable now.”"
