Bowral Waste Centre (BWC) understands there has been an increase in odour detection this week.

This week, landfill gas specialist contractors commenced work at our site – installing the long-term solution for the odour issue. Subsequently, their works caused the increased odour detection.

Thankfully, the odour issue will be completely resolved when this long-term solution is implemented and fully operational.

Gas wells have been installed in the landfill and pipes are being connected. This piping system will extract the gas from the landfill and take it to a collection point where it will be neutralised.

It is expected the system will be fully operational by the end of next week Friday 23rd July. Within a few days of completion, a permanent cure to the odour issue is expected.

Please be assured the landfill gas specialist contractors are working with haste to get the system installed and that BWC staff and management are doing their best to cope with this situation.

Bowral Waste Centre apologises for this inconvenience and will continue to work closely with Council and EPA to ensure that all License and Consent conditions are followed.
