Posted November 09, 2018 05:22:00Construction workers in the Northern Territory are pushing for a large dump to be built in the community of Big D in south-east Sydney.
The proposed landfill, on the NSW Central Coast, is a joint venture between Queensland and South Australia that will hold up to 2,400 tonnes of waste annually.
“We’re pushing for it to be constructed at a big, big site like Big D,” Mr Davenport said.
“There’s a lot of work being done around that area right now.”
You can’t say it’s not important, but it’s just that we’ve got to take a step back and realise that the whole concept of landfill is a big problem.
“Workers in the area say the proposed landfill will destroy the local wildlife habitat.”
This is going to create a really nasty mess in the landscape,” Mr Smith said.
Mr Davenpents group is one of dozens of groups campaigning to stop the project.”
I think it’s really important that we get it right.
I think it has to be a permanent landfill,” Mr Gough said.
Construction is due to begin on the site in 2021.
