Blogger Gideon Mack says that there is a plan to take Readings waste MDF to be burned in an incinerator in Kent!
As Greens we regularly campaign against incineration of waste. We want a zero waste strategy, not a scheme that encourages the production of more waste in order to feed an incinerator.
We should be producing much less waste, reduce, reuse & recycle; not burning rubbish and releasing harmful gases into the atmosphere. Waste incineration encourages councils not to bother with recycling or reducing waste. This is not the message we should be sending out.
The Greens say that burning rubbish encourages more waste, is inefficient in producing energy, wastes resources, produces pollution and still creates toxic ash which needs to be disposed of.
