Description

In 1996 residents living in Werribee, just outside Melbourne, learned that a toxic waste dump was being proposed for a nearby quarry site owned by CSR, an international manufacturer of building products. This program explores the action taken by the community in their conflict with the state government and the company. A local community group called WRATD - Werribee Residents against Toxic Dumps - became the main driving force successfully opposing the toxic waste dump.
