Our government is considering unlocking radioactive waste from secure storage in southern Sydney.

Why? To put it on a truck and haul it all the way to either the Flinders Ranges or the Eyre Peninsula in regional South Australia. 

Radioactive waste risks our air, soil and water. It damages the genetic and reproductive systems of plants, animals and people. And this waste lasts for up to ten thousand years.

The waste cannot be trucked through our communities. There are too many risks and too many communities that have had no say. 

Double handling this waste means twice the trouble and twice the risk.

Our government has called for input on this decision from “anyone with an interest, no matter where they live."

So let's speak out to protect our communities! 

Sign the open letter now asking Resource Minister Keith Pitt to keep the radioactive waste sealed away and out of communities in New South Wales and South Australia:

As people from all across Australia, we call on the federal government and Keith Pitt to keep the radioactive waste securely stored at Australia's Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation in Lucas Heights, Sydney, and out of communities in New South Wales and South Australia.

The waste cannot be trucked through our communities for dumping until a credible storage solution is found.

This is a catastrophic move. We need to steadily move towards nurturing our environment and ultimately ourselves. We already have a waste problem..

I grew up on the Eyre Peninsula and this news frightens me to my very core. We also used to holiday in the Flinders Ranges regularly….. Please don’t use SA as a nuclear waste storage facility.

We must find better solutions that attend to the future of all people!

Keep SA GREEN! Let’s send ALL the anticipated nuclear waste to Lucas Heights with the rest which is ALREADY there.

Dear Mr Canavan,
Radioactive waste does not belong in the Flinders Rangers!! Do not think about using this area as a dumping sight.

Yours sincerely,

What an insane idea! Keep it where it is until a better final solution is found!

This matter is too urgent for delay – keep the radioactive waste sealed away and out of communities in New South Wales and South ustralia
