Summary
Greens MP Ian Cohen has labelled [sic] Peter Garrett a nimby for approving the removal of thousands of tonnes of toxic waste from his electorate. The Minister for Environment Protection was all smiles when he announced the Danish government had agreed to accept the first shipment of hexachlorobenzene from the shores of Kingsford Smith just three days before the Federal Election. Multinational chemical company Orica ceased production of HCB in 1991, but about 16,000 tonnes are in a warehouse in Banksmeadow. Residents campaigned for its removal for decades after it seeped into groundwater in the 1980s. But with the Greens now holding the balance of power in the Senate, the NSW Greens Legislative Council member warned he would urge federal Greens MPs to block future applications to export the waste
