Global Toxicity Chemicals - A Worldwide Nightmare
Book Description HTML | Report this book
The waste and contamination issue examined in this document centers on a considerable list of alleged problems associated with the formerly operational Castlereagh Waste Management Centre waste dump in Sydney, Australia. These problems have been described in terms of pollution leachate moving onto properties surrounding the dump. From the perspective of local landholders, extraordinary and disturbing past occurrences on their properties (including human disease and deaths) relate to then toxic effects arising from liquid waste. In the minds of many in the community surrounding the dump (including residents in ‘non-affected’ areas), the source of the chemical pollution was the Castlereagh dump located geographically at the center of the affected properties.
