Toxic Free Fawkner is campaigning to get the properties that were part of the old NuFarm site cleaned up and opposing inappropriate development of these properties.
Later this week the group will be showing a film to help raise funds for the campaign. This is to raise money for a VCAT case about the toxic site at 102 McBryde St Fawkner.
This site isn’t any contaminated site. It is one of a small number of sites in Australia that is contaminated with dioxin.
Several dangerous chemicals were produced on the site, but the most dangerous one is dioxin. Dioxin is a by-product of the chemicals that were produced on the site 24-D and 245-T. These two chemicals make Agent Orange if they are mixed together.
The group are screening a film about the impact of dioxin on a New Zealand community and the campaign to get the site cleaned up.
