Sunbury waste charges laid

The Environment Protect Authority (EPA) has laid six charges against a company for failing to clean up construction and demolition waste in Sunbury.

On February 22, the EPA announced it laid the charges against Frontlink Pty Ltd and company director Natalie Mondous for failing to comply with an environmental action notice it issued requiring the clean up.

Frontlink Pty Ltd owns a rural property in Sunbury where the waste was left contrary to the Environment Protection Act 2017.

EPA chief investigator Rhonda Murray said construction, demolition and asbestos waste pose a major environmental and human health risk.

“[This] is why EPA focuses on its proper management, transportation and disposal that must be done according to the regulations,” she said.

“We are actively enforcing regulations whenever we find instances of breaches particularly with asbestos waste and will continue to do so.

“Everyone has a duty to protect the environment and EPA will enforce the regulations on behalf of the Victorian community.

“We encourage people to report their litter and pollution concerns to us by calling 1300 372 842 or online at”

The matter is scheduled to be heard in Broadmeadows Magistrates Court on May 10.
