"Incineration reduces recycling"

An article in this week's Alton Herald shows data from the Government that the more waste that councils incinerate, the less they recycle.

Campaigners from No Wey Incinerator say that "research also found that areas with incinerators find themselves tied into long-term waste contracts lasting 20- to 25 years". The incinerator will be a "hungry monster - demanding a constant feeding to justify the investment."

They urge people to provide Hampshire County Council their feedback now on Veolia's plan to demolish the existing recycling facility in Alton and replace it with an incinerator.

To make your voice heard in the public consultation for Veolia's planning application, you need to object now. Hampshire County Council's public consultation closes on 14th August.
