In Craigieburn VIC on “Use and development of a...” at 65 Amaroo Rd Craigieburn VIC 3064:

Ian Payne commented

As a resident of Hume I am disgusted.
1. This will create massive pollution in Craigieburn and a number of nearby suburbs.
2. It is a poor attempt at achieving anything with any environmental benefit, as the reduction in landfill will not compensate for the amount of unknown pollutants to be produced.
3. The fires in recent years in other suburbs within Hume should have given you plenty of warning about the dangers of a recycling facility going haywire, and even an operator that appears willing to do the right thing can turn out to be irresponsible.
4. This is not a genuine to create renewable energy that can compare favourably with existing forms of renewable energy such as solar..
5. Other forms of treatment of recyclable materials would be far more effective. For example the worst contaminant is broken glass. A bottle recycling system is already proven interstate and this should be pursued in Victoria. A specific glass recycling depot would be used greatly. paper and cardboard is already recycled most effectively and more depots should be created. Plastic inclusion in road surfacing materials is already being tested. Other plastic recycling facilities produce items such as park benches that are a success.
6. The reputation of Craigieburn as a suburb will be forever besmirched as a destination for those looking to move here. Much has been done to generate a great range of infrastructure, shopping and sporting features in Craigieburn and all that effort will be clouded.
