You will need this approval if you intend to build, install, modify or conduct works in relation to waste. This can include a number of works such as disposal of waste by burial (landfill), the construction of sewage treatment plants, storage or recycling plants and the constructing of premises for processing hydrocarbons.
The purpose of this approval is to manage any potential environment impacts arising from the construction, installation and operation of waste related premises.
Northern Territory Environment Protection Authority (NTEPA) will undertake an environmental impact assessment in relation to your approval. This assessment is to ensure that any potential actions do not have an unacceptable or significant impact on the environment.
