Alphington paper mill hits back over odour - Local News - News - General - Melbourne Times Weekly

Alphington paper mill hits back over odour - Local News - News - General - Melbourne Times Weekly: "AMCOR is seeking a review of the five EPA pollution abatement notices regarding waste management and odour issues at the Alphington paper mill.
EPA issued the notices on May 20 following hundreds of complaints from the community, which led to its officers conducting a six-week odour surveillance.

Amcor previously told MTW it was working through the requirements of each notice.

However, EPA said Amcor now alleges the notices require measures that were:

- not cost-effective and disproportionate to the magnitude of the pollution

- not based on any evidence of pollution or likelihood of pollution

- excessive, unreasonable, uncertain and vague

- not directed at abating pollution

- issued for an improper purpose."
