subsidiary of Bingo Industries Ltd, for the supposed release of offending rotten egg gas smells, which the authority states is an offense under the Security of the Environment Operations Act 1997. The EPA declares that Bingo stopped working to effectively manage the release of land fill gas or treat it to get rid of bad odours. In a declaration, Bingo stated it invested$3 million on facilities to alleviate the release of smells from the center at the centre of the complaints.

gas collection and management system that is now in operation which a$ 4 million irreversible gas management system would remain in location by the end of this year. The optimum fine Bingo deals with when the matter goes to the Land and Environment Court is $1 million. Minchinbury resident Zara Tai informed the Herald in 2015 that the odor woke residents during the night which some were pushing damp towels under their doors to keep the odor out.
