Ravenhall Landfill Site
Waste management giant Cleanaway has applied to triple the size of its Ravenhall landfill site in Melbourne's outer west to 450 hectares, making it the biggest landfill on the planet. If expanded, Ravenhall will be able to accept 1.5 million tonnes of landfill each year. To feed it, an additional fleet of 24 B-double trucks, each 26 metres long, will cross the entire city, bringing garbage from transfer stations as far away as Clayton and Dandenong , and along already congested routes, such as the Monash Freeway.

The 130-kilometre round trip will traverse suburbs including Mt Waverley, Malvern, South Melbourne , Richmond and Sunshine, and run every 10 minutes between 4am and 4pm.

Planning department insiders highlight the fact the '' not in my backyard' ' campaign from local residents is slick and well organised. Property developers own large tracts of land around the planned tip site, the value of which would drop should the expansion go ahead. Fairfax Media has previously reported that Mount Atkinson Holdings, which owns land next to the planned tip site, engaged the services of lobbyist firm The Civic Group, which is the registered owner of the website. Landowners have joined forces with the already vociferous local community to fight the tip.
