It would also include information relevant to the monitoring of the Landfill operations, as well as maintenance, complaint resolution, and new approvals or amendments to existing approvals related to current operations.

Should there be no response or request by the public to establish such a PLC, the need for the PLC will be re-reviewed annually. As required observance with the Amended ECA, the report will include this notice, to demonstrate transparency in public opportunity to request a PLC for the Landfill Site.
