[Reposted] MyZeroWaste: "Why waste incineration is wrong"

Link to My Zero Waste web site (from 2008)

"... Taking a wide view of post-consumer and post-industrial waste reveals that the real root of the problem lies much further back. and begins with the production of waste, as opposed to its disposal. That may seem obvious, but if so, why are we even contemplating the use of incinerators? 

"Why don’t we grasp the nettle of responsibility, and prevent the problem, and stop taking reactive measures of dealing with the monster, after it has escaped? If we project the waste problem into future generations, it’s clear that incineration can only be a temporary measure, or reserved for specialist waste disposal needs."
