No Toxic Waste Dump for Central Australia.

Write a letter to Northern Territory Environment Minister Lauren Moss urging her to not approve the Tellus Chandler Salt Mine and Hazardous Waste Facility.

Concerns over project include:

  • Claims of misleading consultation with Titjikala residents
  • Types of hazardous waste to be stored including fracking waste
  • Long term responsibility of waste management
  • Risk of accidents and spillage at the site
  • Transportation of toxic chemicals on local roads and railway
  • Inadequate regulations to ensure safety and compliance
  • Suitability of the site to host toxic waste forever
  • No legislated guarantee that nuclear waste won’t be stored at the site in the future
