Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 7 Hansard (7 June) . . Page.. 3020..


Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The land on which Canberra Concrete Recyclers Pty Ltd (CCR) operates is National land, held by the Department of Defence.

Canberra Concrete Recyclers Pty Ltd current activities are authorised under the Environment Protection Act 1997 for the operation of a facility for crushing, grinding and separation of materials and the acceptance of virgin excavated natural material.

One of the conditions of the Authorisation is that the activities must be undertaken in accordance with an approved Environment Management Plan (EMP). The placement of soil including management of run off from soil and other material recycled at the site is undertaken in accordance with the EMP which details the measures to minimise discharges to the environment.

The authorisation was granted on 10 September 2007. However, it does not cover the management of historic placement of contaminated material on the site other than the requirement to monitor the existing groundwater monitoring wells.

(2) Yes. (a) records indicate that a landfill operated at the site from the mid-1960's until it was closed in 1978. (b) the exact extent of rehabilitation measures is unknown. Further information may be available from the Department of Defence.

(3) The site is not recorded on the contaminated sites Register as no Orders have been issued under the Environment Protection Act 1997 but is recorded on the EPA's Contaminated Sites Management Database and Geographical Information System given its previous use.
