New South Wales
I wish to outline my disagreement with such a facility being constructed within this area of Western Sydney. This is a community with people of all ages, and from all walks of life, who may be detrimentally impacted by any exhaust or fumes released into the environment. I myself have a young child, who does not need extra exposure to potential toxins released. I have neighbours who are elderly and suffer from health issues, and also do not need another thing to impact their health. There are also animals, both domesticated and undomesticated who call Western Sydney home, and will be at a loss due to the area for the facility and the fumes released.
This is an area of Sydney that is growing quickly, with young people looking to buy and rent properties here, which in turn helps boost the local economies. By constructing such a project, it will impact the influx of people, thereby potentially reducing our local economies, to the detriment of all.
Lastly, I am curious to understand the value of an incinerator environmentally, as compared to existing waste methods. Is it not just swapping landfill with greenhouse gases and airborne toxins? I dont believe either is great for the environment, however certainly landfill must have a smaller effect on global warming? We as a society should not be swapping one negative for another, but instead focus on reducing ournwaste, boosting our recyclable products and further ingrain that process into our society.
