Stop Waste Incinerators

Setting fire to our waste problems should never be the answer.

For decades the Government has neglected waste and recycling, and now they want to burn the problem and leave the regions to deal with the mess.

The latest is a massive waste incinerator that will be built next door to Lara homes and schools unless we do everything we can to stop it. 

Unfortunately, Lara residents are already dealing with air pollution levels the World Health Organisation would deem unsafe and this will only make the problem worse.

They deserve better than being burdened with a hazardous waste facility that puts their health and environment at further risk of harm.

Building new projects like this also undermines our State and lcoal efforts to reduce waste. This incinerator will be capable of burning 400,000 tonnes of waste, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for the next 25 years. 

That’s more waste than the whole of Western Victoria even produces!

 It’s inevitable that waste-guzzling incinerators just like this one end up burning recyclables, plastic and organic waste because there is no commitment from these companies that they will separate the waste they receive. 

This is not what our climate or communities need right now – we need to focus on waste reduction, not toxic incinerators.
