The Regional Landfill at Port Latta Landfill was commissioned in February 1992 and is operated by Circular Head Council. It mainly receives wastes from the Circular Head and the Neighboring Waratah/Wynyard Councils, but also receives significant volumes of hazardous wastes from external sources.
The landfill operates under an Environmental Protection Notice (EPN) license issued by the Evironmental Protection Authority (EPA) in January 1996. The Landfill operates under an Environmental Management Plan, which is reviewed on a regular basis.
Circular Head Council has expanded the operation to accept hazardous wastes, and to include processing of hydrocarbon contaminated soil.
Proposed disposal of Hazardous wastes that require an EPA approval to be sought by the applicant and submitted with an entry permit application include:
- Fire Debris
- Hydrocarbon Contaminated soil
- Other controlled wastes
