The public have until October 9th to comment on the latest controversial proposals for waste disposal in Suffolk. The plans include one or two waste incinerators at Great Blakenham, with further sites identified at Sproughton, Eye and
- Burns scarce resources
- Generates huge amounts of carbon dioxide
- Produces dangerous emissions which accumulate in the body
- Encourages us to continue with a “throwaway” mentality instead of encouraging recycling.
More environmentally friendly options are available – for example using anaerobic digestion to break down waste and produce soil improver. As already stated incineration is a health hazard as well as being unpopular and environmentally unfriendly. If you are opposed to the building of an incinerator, please back our petition to make the County Council reconsider this decision. Our petition can be found at http://suffolkcclibdems.org.uk
