Box Hill Municipal Incinerator

Speaker Jim Happ, a retired Metallurgical Engineer, will speak on this somewhat unusual subject. For many years in the early 1900s, municipal waste was sent to a filthy tip, with horrendous impacts on community health. Jim will tell us about the key role Box Hill played in the development of an Australian innovation in waste incineration, allowing the closure of those tips.
