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 Matt Canavan 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 Matt Canavan 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.

Our state should be safe for everyone, and for all flora and fauna, now and for the future.

Australia is stuck with the waste because it was allowed to be created in the past, many accidents in other countries have shown that nuclear technology is NOT safe. Store it where it is, and DON’T create any more!!

Radioactive waste needs to be stored safely and not impact on waterways,soil and communities.Do your job Canavan

You really can’t vouch for the geological shifts into the future so it’s ludicrous to dump the waste there.
