I believe the site is too close to the Sydney Water Supply pipeline. Any major explosion on site could be catastrophic in damaging the adjacent pipeline . Why is it not being built within the current Waste Recovery Centre 200 metres away. Also this is the first of its kind in NSW, why not wait until the project in Western Australia being developed by Macquarie as co-investor has been commissioned to determine any pitfalls or shortcomings

I live within 12 KM of the proposed incinerator site, we live in a stated growth area, and have to put up within much pollution of various types. With Badgeries Creek airport creating noise, airborne contaminants and the constant risk of fuel delivery. Now cleanaway wants to add another pollutant of another toxic variable. I and many others say “no more” take it somewhere else, its a big wide open country, don' contaminate West Sydney anymore!

I object for this incinerator to go ahead.
The toxic fumes that will come out of this incinerator will be harmful for the environment.
The health of the people of Western Sydney will be in danger every time we step outside and breath in these fumes.

It will be built so close to schools and homes. We need to put a stop to this immediately!!

The value of homes will also decrease. This is extremely unfair for the surrounding communities.

We need the support of councils and the Government to help the people of western Sydney and put a stop to this proposal.

I have lived in my suburb for over 28 years and my children have grown up playing outside and loving the area too, but their children will never feel safe playing outside if this is passed with the harmful toxins it will release into the air and then damage to water and food quality. I do not want this occurring near such a populated area, which is still growing. Western Sydney is becoming more of a tourist attraction with Raging Waters, The new Zoo and more projects to build for the future like the aiport. Why put this near such an area with schools, businesses and livelihoods.

I object the project to build an incinerator in western sydney. This project will have more downsides than benefits such as the impact of pollutions versus the small amount of energy it will create. Most importantly we do not want Western sydney area to be dumping ground for sydney's trashes. We should thrive to keep and improve the way and quality of life of the residents in western suburbs and not downgrade them.
I strongly oppose the project!

This is very disappointing that we are being subjected to this again, please do not allow this to proceed. I also ask that measures are put in place to prevent any further or future attempts. Western Sydney is the home of millions of families and should not be used as a dump, by the rich who are determined despite previous rejection by the community and EPA. We must put in place laws to protect our community from this happening for once and for all.

Having this in our neighborhood is not good for our health. I think it should find a more suitable location away from so many residents.
We don't want to be breathing in toxic chemical nor should we have to.
