Labor backflips on promise to take action on dangerous recycling stockpiles

In Question Time in Parliament today, Labor’s Environment Minister, Lily D’Ambrosio, backflipped on her promise to clean up dangerous, flammable stockpiles of recycling.

In Parliament just last week Minister D’Ambrosio said:

"…our priority is to get these dangerous stockpiles cleared up…"

Despite this promise, Minister D’Ambrosio confirmed today that she won’t take any action to clean up the five warehouses across Melbourne that remain packed to the roof with recyclable materials.

Labor’s broken promise to clean up these dangerous, flammable stockpiles will place the health and safety of the community at risk.

Daniel Andrews must take immediate action to clean up these dangerous recycling stockpiles before yet another toxic factory fire breaks out.
