Proposed expansion of Fyshwick metal recycling facility

Proposed expansion of Fyshwick metal recycling facility

Have your say on Development Application DA201935337, a proposal for new machinery to enhance a metal recycling operation in Fyshwick. A key issue is proposed open air shredding of metal. US studies indicate that each tonne of steel that is recovered in a similar process is expected to produce about 300 kg of residue, comprised of plastics, rubber, glass, foam and textiles, contaminated by oil and other fluids. In the proposed open air shredding process an appreciable amount of microscopic particles from car interiors and paint will escape into the air as dust. An inner south resident has undertaken the attached analysis of issues that may need to be addressed. Closing date for representations to DA201935337 is Friday 14 June up to midnight.
