Maroondah Journal: Recycling plant on notice for breach of public health

By October 23, 2007No Comments

The Maroondah Journal has reported on the successful prosecution of Southern Rocycling brought forward by Maroondah City Council

Southern Rocycling, which due to excessive noise volumes was found to have breached the Health Act, was placed on an 18 month good behaviour bond as well as being ordered to pay $3000 to the Salvation Army’s EastCare Network and costs of $7978 to Maroondah City Council.

Cr Alex Makin said it was a win for the community.

“The 18-month bond will determine whether CMA is sincere in rebuilding the relationship with the community and council, and provide piece of mind for the community.”

CMA Corporation which purchased Southern Rocycling in July, must demonstrate that it is willing to cooperate with the community and will address resident concerns.

“The council has had two successful convictions against Southern Rocycling now.”

The two successful prosecutions has demonstrated that residents are rightfully concerned about their local amenity and the excessive noise volumes caused by the operations of Southern Rocycling.

It is hoped that CMA Corporation, as the new owners of Southern Rocycling, will work to establish goodwill with the community.
