Just to let you know we have been advised that the fire is now out.

Envar Composting Ltd reported this morning that there was only a small amount of material left alight on site which they expected to be able to extinguish today.

Our incident Site Controller will visit again early next week to confirm that this is the case and at that point we will close our incident response.

We have (as the regulator) been investigating the circumstances of the fire, assessing compliance with the environmental waste permit.  We will review our findings and take the appropriate steps.

We will also be advising Envar that they need to consider community relations and how they might engage productively with you, the communities that have been impacted by smoke and odour generated by the fire on their site.

Yours sincerely,

Jen Woodward
