Landfill, dry waste disposal site, Dallier Street, Banjup

Proposal description: 

The proposal is to fill a mined sand pit by allowing waste disposal operators, such as demolition contractors, to dump dry waste materials (i.e. inert fill) under the supervision of the proponent. The site would be operated from 7 am to 4 pm.

The landfill would have a life of about 5 years. The floor of the landfilI pit would be raised to a minimum level of RL 30 m to ensure at least 3 metres of clean sand between the inert fill and the highest known water table. Waste materials would be dumped, levelled and compacted in 2 m thick stages.

The site is located within a proclaimed Underground Water Pollution Control Area which is also a Public Water Supply Area designated as a Priority 2 Source Area. Pt Lot 135 is located about 750 m from two proposed Water Authority bores.
