Waste con­cerns

Southern Telegraph - - OPINION -

How green is this new waste-to-en­ergy fa­cil­ity (‘Trash to trea­sure’, 13/ 3)?

One as­sumes that there has been rig­or­ous test­ing prior to con­struc­tion to de­ter­mine whether there will be ad­verse health prob­lems for neigh­bour­ing res­i­dents.

If so, have any mer­cury, lead or ar­senic or other dan­ger­ous chem­i­cals been de­tected?

Can there be any 100 per cent con­fir­ma­tion from pro­po­nents that Kwinana lo­cals will not be harmed by toxic pol­lu­tants em­a­nat­ing from this plant?

In any event, the last thing we need is an­other costly Point Peron-type fi­asco. David Rud­man Port Kennedy
