Campaigners from Cardiff, Merthyr Tydfil and Newport protested today at the National Assembly of Wales today against Welsh Government sponsored incineration schemes. This comes against a background of council incompetence and incinerator bids collapsing.

Stop incinerator ash being classed as recycling

Waste incinerator chimney

The Welsh Assembly Government is consulting on its future waste policy. If the guidance is not changed it will allow bottom ash from incinerators to be included in recycling targets.

There are serious concerns over whether this ash is safe. Doing this also supports incineration as a way of dealing with municipal waste often at the expense of recycling.

Environment Agency decision on the Cardiff incinerator announced

On 4 November 2010 the Environment Agency announced its decision on whether give Viridor an Environmental Permit to operate their huge, polluting and wasteful incinerator in Cardiff. Unfortunately they have chosen to ignore the evidence that the Cardiff Against the Incinerator campaign submitted and have given Viridor the green light.

Despite this setback the campaign goes on.
