This plan has been developed to document the processes required to prepare for and respond to pollution incidents for the Ballina Shire Council's Waste Management Facility (EPA Licence No. 6350) and ensure that hazards to the environment, human health and safety are reduced, if not eliminated. It has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 and Protection of the Environment Operations (General) Regulation 2009.
