Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 01 Hansard (Thursday, 3 December 2020) . . Page.. 122 ..


The load proposed across the two locations is 1.4 million tonnes a year (around 130,000 waste trucks) which is 40% more than the ACT’s current annual waste at Mugga Lane (around one million tonnes).

The potential impact on the comfort, well-being and safety of thousands of people who visit the precinct daily is affecting business confidence and threatening the jobs of 13,000 workers.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the Assembly to reject any current and future proposals for waste processing facilities in Fyshwick and work with the proponents to find more suitable alternate sites.

The Clerk having announced that the terms of the petition would be recorded in Hansard and referred to the appropriate ministers for response pursuant to standing order 100, the petition was received.

Pursuant to standing order 99A, the petition, having more than 500 signatories, was referred to the Standing Committee on Planning, Transport and City Services.
