COMMUNIT Y NEWS Geelands Road Dumper Pleads Not Guilty Galston Guides consists of two units – Junior Guides (aged 6-9) and Guides (aged 10-14). Both units welcome new members and offer a range of activities throughout the term, including games nights, badge work, outdoors activities, campfire cooking and playing with friends. This year the girls have also been camping, ten pin bowling, rock climbing and they will be ending the year with an exciting visit to Treetops Adventure Park in West Pennant Hills. Guides meet in school term-time only. If your daughter would like to join Guides in 2019, please contact us at admin@galstongir­lguides. com.

Paul Mouawad, the owner of Aussie Earthovers, attended the Land and Environmen­t Court on Friday 23rd November. The charges were bought by the NSW EPA following the dumping of asbestos contaminat­ed fill at 22 Geelans Road, Arcadia. He pleaded not guilty to most charges. In March the EPA took soil samples at 22 Geelans Rd, Arcadia, and found it to be contaminat­ed with asbestos. They also discovered anomalies in the paperwork relating to the fill that was delivered to the site. If found guilty, the Court can impose a fine of up to $240,000 or imprisonme­nt for 18 months, or both for supplying false or misleading informatio­n. We understand the NSW Government passed new laws recently creating a new offence for asbestos dumping, attracting the highest level of penalties including infringeme­nts of $5 million for a company and $500,000 for an individual. We will report further once the outcome of the court case is known.
