Your Old LEGO Might Be Toxic

  Your Old LEGO Might Be Toxic It's a heartwarming idea to bring out that beloved old bin of LEGO you played with as a child and hand it down to your kids so they can experience the same magic. But it's probably safer to find a newer set. Scientists in England tested 200 used plastic toys for nine hazardous elements, and found that ten per cent contained traces of all of them. One toy to watch out for? "LEGO bricks from the '70s and '80s are the big fail," Andrew Turner, the study's lead researcher, told the BBC.Turner and his team at the University of Plymouth used X-ray fluorescence technology to check toys they found in homes, nurseries and op shops.

A crowd of about 100 people converged on NSW parliament on Tuesday to protest the planned $700 million energy-from-waste incinerator being built in Eastern Creek.

Addressing the crowd on Macquarie Street, Opposition Leader Luke Foley said Labor would support a Greens bill preventing large waste incinerators within 15km of urban zonings.

Mr Foley, who said the incinerator was just a few hundred metres from homes, vowed Labor would also mount an attack on the "outrageous toxic proposal" in the Lower House.

"It's toxic in a polluting sense but let's make it toxic politically for the government," Mr Foley told the vocal crowd.

"We want to put the premier on the spot, we want to put the planning minister on the spot and we want to put on the spot the local member of parliament whose constituents will cop the worst of this toxic incinerator, the member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies."

Greens MP Jerry Buckingham described the incinerator as a "get-rich-quick scheme" that would turn the air into "a toxic soup".

"This is not clean energy, it's a toxic nightmare," he said.

A spokesman for Planning Minister Anthony Roberts said that as the matter was before the Independent Planning Assessment Commission he would not be able to comment.

The controversial proposal by Dial-A-Dump would burn about half a million tonnes of waste a year, Labor claimed.

A spokesman for the NSW Department of Planning and Environment said the size of the proposed facility was reduced by half following significant community opposition and government agency feedback.

"The next step in the process is for the department to consider the proposal on its merits and finalise its assessment, taking into consideration the issues raised by government agencies and the community," he said in a statement.
