Waste industry mismanagement - a State and Federal issue.

This petition had 11 supporters

The waste industry in NSW has been grossly mismanaged, with underhanded deals, illegal dumping and a facade of recycling services that is just a ruse.

Every participant in the industry - from local councils, to waste management businesses, transport companies, warehouses, the EPA and governmental agencies, both State and Federal are culpable.

NSW Taxpayers believe their taxes are going towards proper disposal of waste, when in fact large quantities are being illegally dumped in Queensland, in Victoria, and overseas. Recycling of household waste has stalled due to industry  economics.

It is people and the environment that are at risk and suffering here. People living near to illegal dumping sites, the impact of the air and soil quality on environments unprepared for illegal, mass dumping. Ultimately, the environment and Australians are impacted.

Join us in petitioning the NSW State Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to have the governments we have elected, ACT to rectify this issue and implement systems to manage our waste appropriately.
