A range of environmental monitoring is conducted at Summerhill Waste Management Centre (SWMC) in an effort to measure any impacts that the operations at the Centre may have on the environment. The type and frequency of monitoring conducted is specified by the Centre’s Environment Protection Licence (EPL No. 5897), which is administered by the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA). A copy of the EPL can be viewed on the EPA’s website (select the 'Licences' option and then type '5897' against 'Licence number').
