Failure to install spill control costs $30K

A Tottenham metal recycler has been fined $16,000 and ordered to pay Environment Protection Authority Victoria’s (EPA) $14,000 costs at Sunshine Magistrates Court.
Both the company director and the BDM pled guilty to three charges of noncompliance.

The noncompliance concerned:

  • failure to install (and report on) engineering controls so as to contain any spills or leaks of liquid waste from such activities & prevent them from accessing land and stormwater.
