Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 14 Hansard (7 December) . . Page.. 5789..


Petitions

The following petitions were lodged for presentation:

Recycling—batteries and light bulbs—petition No 114

By Ms Le Couteur, from 211 residents:

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory

This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that: Fluorescent light globes are hazardous waste and are unsuitable for disposal in landfill. Fluorescent light globes can be recycled at Mugga Lane and Mitchell Resource Management Centres yet these two drop off points are inconvenient and impractical for most residents of the ACT.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to: Provide for the establishment of a convenient, community drop off system across the ACT, for fluorescent light globes.

Recycling—batteries and light bulbs—petition No 115

By Ms Le Couteur, from 24 residents:

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory

This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that: Batteries are hazardous waste and are unsuitable for disposal in landfill. There are not convenient and practical drop off points for residents of the ACT to recycle their batteries.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to: Provide for the establishment of a convenient, community drop off system across the ACT, for battery recycling.

The Clerk having announced that the terms of the petitions would be recorded in Hansard and a copy of each referred to the appropriate minister, the petitions were received.
