What is on-site at Taylors Road landfill?

  • Taylors Road Engineered Landfill
    Read More

    Veolia's Taylors Road smart cell® is the only facility in Victoria licensed to receive a broad range of solid Prescribed Industrial Waste (PIW, often referred to as hazardous waste) classified as Category B in accordance to EPA Victoria's Industrial Waste Resource Guidelines.

    The site has been specifically designed to include a variety of environmental protection measures including strict waste acceptance and handling procedures, side and basal liner systems, collection and treatment of leachate (wastewater generated within the smart cell®), collection and use of biogas, groundwater and surface water management, and detailed environmental monitoring and reporting.

    These measures meet or exceed requirements set out in the facility's operating licences issued by the EPA.


    Waste Disposal

    Any waste received at our Taylors Road smart cell® is subject to rigorous materials handling procedures including visual inspection and logging of all material on its arrival at the weighbridge.

    • Customer disposing of prescribed waste at Taylors Road must adhere to the following procedure (for each load disposed at the smart cell®):
    • Customers must get a waste sample analysed by a certified laboratory. The laboratory forwards sampling results to Veolia so that it can be checked for compliance against its licence.
    • The customer is also required to send a reference waste sample to Veolia, which is checked against the requirements of the licence and Veolia’s environment management standards.
    • If both samples are compliant, the waste is booked in for delivery to Taylors Road facility.
    • When the vehicle arrives, a sample is taken from the load and checked against the reference sample and further on-site testing of the load sample is undertaken.
    • If compliant, the vehicle is permitted to enter the site for delivery of the waste.


    Responsible Environmental Management

    Veolia is serious about environmental management at all our sites and facilities. The procedures in place at our Taylors Road smart cell® has seen it become the first Victorian facility to achieve Environmental Management certification to International Standard ISO14001.

    The site has also achieved accreditation under the Australian Standard AS4801 for its Occupational Health and Safety system.

The Group provides a forum for discussion and feedback between the Veolia project team and representatives of the community and local councils on matters relating to the Taylors Road facility. This facilitates community awareness of the operations, environmental performance and any development of the facility, and fosters understanding and cooperation to minimise the impact of the facility on the local community.
