Over the past two weeks, a number of fire prevention activities have taken place at the Broderick Road recycling site in Lara.
- Fire services access road constructed
- Water access point completed
- Vegetation clearing
- Further training of security staff on fire prevention (including how to use fire fighting equipment on the site)
In the coming week, preparatory work will be undertaken to move mulch from the rear of the site to the northern end. This is a safety precaution to prevent the stockpiles overheating as the weather warms up.
Over the next month, we anticipate the installation of water tanks on site.
