New South Wales
I strongly object to this project. Our Western Sydney community had rallied around last time the Incinerator project was tabled. At the time - the health & safety of the community WAS more important than the Big Business dollars. Doesn’t seem to be the case now and Cleanaway is on board, wanting to pollute our lives.
How could any planning department move forward with 2 Incinerators, so close to Residential areas. Look at the 5km radius of these two planned Incinerators and the densely populated areas it covers. It’s disgusting that the health and well being of people means so little.
How dare the government consider something this drastic and not ensure that every resident that will be affected is contacted directly, to be made aware of the effects this will have on their lives.
It’s not like Western Sydney hasn’t struggled enough with fires, floods and CoVid and if we didn’t lose people that way - we are now told we will now potentially living in an environmental sacrifice zone with the proposal of 2 Incinerators.
Even after all the hard work done to rally around last time to stop the one Incinerator being built there, how is this even being tabled again?
Why should our community be put at higher risk of disease, such as cancer, asthma, reduced lung function and other health impacts, living in such close proximity to the toxic emission that will be released. What about our physical and mental health? What about all of the schools within that 5km radius? What about the elderly, the families? To say nothing of property values.
Surely the communities could be serviced by renewable energy and zero-waste streams that eliminates the need for these types of incinerators.
Please - reconsider this proposal and object this going forward. Again.
