Sign the NSW petition

Save Tarago and the Southern Tablelands from Toxic Industrial Waste Incinerators. Make your voice heard and support communities across the Southern Tablelands by signing the NSW Parliament e-Petition to say NO to building waste-to-energy incinerators for burning Sydney’s rubbish in Tarago or anywhere else in the Southern Tablelands. The government has said these facilities can’t be built in Sydney because of the health impacts – if it isn’t good enough for Sydney, then why is it ok for Regional NSW?


The petition takes less than 2 minutes to complete and your support is vital to help protect local communities in this region.

Each signature demonstrates to NSW Parliament that residents and citizens across NSW do not want large industrial waste incinerators polluting our homes, animals, land and food. This petition is only active for 3 months and we need 20,000 signatures to force the government to take this seriously. Local MP for Goulburn, Wendy Tuckerman, has agreed to support and present the petition on behalf of the community.
