Waste decision a ‘broken promise of epic proportions’


May 1, 2018 by admin

RADIOACTIVE waste could be coming to Kemps Creek, Labor councillor Prue Car has claimed.

But Mulgoa state Liberal MP and retiring Penrith councillor Tanya Davies accused Cr Car of misleading voters in her campaign for re-election to the council.

Cr Car cited Finance Minister Greg Pearce’s answer to a question in State Parliament on disposal of radioactive waste from Hunters Hill this month.

“The soil removed from these residential properties is expected to comply with the restricted solid waste classification,” Mr Pearce said.

Cr Car said Kemps Creek was the only site licensed to take restricted solid waste.

“The minister said it would not be going to Lidcombe, therefore it’s going to Kemps Creek,” she said.

“This is a broken promise of epic proportions.”

She cited Mrs Davies’s words from 2010 when, as a Liberal candidate she said: “The people of western Sydney are not the dumping ground of Sydney.”

Mrs Davies said it was not high-level radioactive waste.

“Prue doesn’t understand these matters,” she said.

The councillors’ war of words continued at Monday’s meeting.

Mrs Davies said hazardous radioactive waste would go to Lidcombe which was licensed to contain it.

“There is a measure for hazardous radioactivity and, below that reading, it’s deemed restricted solid waste,” she said.

But Cr Car said the government was still breaking its promise.

“People have argued about the difference between hazardous and restricted solid waste,” she said.

“It’s all dangerous.”
