Summary
Client: The Nobby Shed
Location: Nobby, QLD
Date: Nov 2012 to Feb 2013

In November 2012 following the receipt of a Notice issued by the Toowoomba Regional Council under the Environmental Protection Act 1994, The Nobby Shed engaged Yarramine Environmental to undertake an Environmental Evaluation Investigation of its metal recovery scrap yard located in Nobby.

 

The Notice was issued by Council following an anonymous complaint, and a subsequent a site inspection by a Council Environmental Health Officer in October 2012.

 

This site inspection concluded the operation was likely causing environmental nuisance or harm under the Act due to the improper storage of scrap metal, lead acid batteries and other scrap whilst awaiting processing.
