The expanding Mugga Lane Landfill

Territory and Municipal Services have kicked off a consultation on making the Mugga Lane landfill larger:

The ACT Government is seeking community comment on a proposal to develop the next stage of landfill at the Mugga Lane Resource Management Centre. A series of displays and community information sessions will be held over the coming weeks.

“The ACT has one active landfill site for general and putrescible (organic) waste at Mugga Lane. It is estimated that the current landfill area can only accommodate another three years of waste generated by the ACT. As such, work is now underway to plan for the continuation of landfill at Mugga Lane,” Director, ACT NOWaste, Chris Ware, said.

“The ACT Government has commenced planning for the development of Mugga Stage 5 adjacent to the current landfill area. This new space will be around 37 hectares in size (or about half the size of the previous landfill areas) and is expected to service the ACT’s need for landfill until at least 2035.”

No Waste 2010 is obviously coming along swimmingly.

What’s Your opinion?

I love how they made the landfill look really green whilst the surrounding areas are a drab khaki. Guess all that waste makes good fertilizer. More of it I say. Then give it away to us fro free.

The first decision for their new minister? I’m sure Shane Rattenbury and TAMS managers are going to get along just fine!

I think they should put the new landfill sections further South, closer to Macarthur.

Thanks sniper for that magnificent idea. However there is going to be a landfill there already,… the cemetery,, and there are also at least two pits filled with slaughtered kangaroos.

I hear there’s some good land next to the Gaol or possibly even closer to the NSW border.

Will that put it under a flight path?

Now there’s a sensible solution.

The fools! They should have just done it and put out a press release when they were finished.

They’ve just opened a Pandora’s box of bitching and opposition from those people who didn’t realise they’d be living next to a landfill when they bought a house next to a landfill.
