stop waste incineration

Air pollution kills. It is a simple fact that waste incineration adds to the pollution we all breathe.

Burning rubbish damages our health and the environment.  The dioxins that are released get in to in to the soil, water and food chain.

Even if you don’t live close enough to breathe in the poisons directly you could be eating food that has been contaminated.

The toxic emissions cause cancer, birth defects and breathing problems.

Big business cannot dictate local policy.

Waste companies are telling local councils across the country that the only way to deal with our waste is to burn it.  They are choosing the most profitable option for them and not what is right for the local community and the country as a whole.  There are better ways to treat our rubbish than burning it.

Our health and our green spaces are worth fighting for.

Stop them from polluting the environment for profit.  Tell Eric Pickles that he must put health before wealth.

Eric Pickles has already refused planning consent for an incinerator in Cheshire and has called in a similar proposal in Kings Lynn.

He must do more and stop any new waste incinerators from being built.

Together we can make a difference.
