Stockpile guidelines help manage fire risks

Stockpile guidelines help manage fire risks

The ACT Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has developed the Guidelines for Stockpile Management which outline the potential risks associated with the stockpiling of materials for use, reuse and recycling, and provides guidance on controls to reduce those risks.

As Canberra grows, the stockpiling of bulk materials is likely to increase. The guidelines are intended to support effective decision making regarding the management of stockpiled materials to minimise fire risk and protect human health and the environment.
