EFFLUENT CONTROL * Australia: LIVESTOCK TRUCKS

* ACT - ALTRA calls to regulators: "GET SERIOUS ABOUT EFFLUENT CONTROL"

--- The Australian Livestock and Rural Transporters Association (ALRTA) has called on transport regulators to get serious about the application of chain of responsibility (CoR) to livestock preparation... ALRTA President, Kevin Keenan, said that the matter has remained unresolved for two decades and it is past time to get serious about the issue... “The loss of effluent from a heavy vehicle is routinely treated as a load restraint breach under the HVNL. It is widely known that the primary cause is inadequate preparation of livestock by chain parties prior to transport”, said President Keenan...

... “Poor effluent control can have implications for road safety, animal welfare, biosecurity, public amenity and the environment. Trailer effluent tanks can only ever offer a partial solution because of their low capacity and the severe lack of managed dumping sites... It is blatantly unfair to continue prosecuting drivers and operators for breaches caused by other parties in the chain. Governments should either make the CoR provisions clear and effective, or just exempt effluent from the HVNL load restraint provisions altogether,” said President Keenan...
