Does Sheffield still incinerate it's rubbish?

Recommended Posts

oh, I thought I might have missed something! Silly me, I presumed that something like an incinerator would be built to top spec to contain dangerous chemicals and somehow make them all disappear....

 

That was Onyx's argument in building a new incinerator in place of the old one... but given their record in running the old one (it broke environmental limits in terms of pollutants on a regular basis, and would explode every now and then) I'm not in a hurry to trust them with the new one, especially when reaches the end of its useful life in a decade or two :nono:

Thanksfor those links Abdul. It seems I have found a new soapbox! I have spent the last three years campaigning for reusable nappies awareness in Sheffield (4% of all household rubbish is disposable nappies with 8 million a week ending up in landfill in England.)

 

Now I have two nappy graduates I have fallen out of that circle really, but I am still passionate about enviromental issues and think this might be my next target!
