BBC: "Waste plant plan opponents to give evidence at Assembly"

Link to BBC Wales

"Opponents of plans to develop waste incinerators around Wales have welcomed the opportunity to put their arguments in person to Welsh Assembly members.

"The prospect of energy from waste incinerators has its roots in the Welsh government's waste strategy, entitled Towards Zero Waste, which sets out ambitious targets.

Haf Elgar, a Friends of the Earth Cymru campaigner, told BBC Radio Wales:
"We're concerned that incineration is really on old technology. It essentially takes black bin waste and burns it at a high temperature.

We believe that's wasteful, because other technologies can sort waste and make the most of recycling and re-using valuable materials that are just burnt in incineration."
