"Newport council is due next Tuesday to approve a business case for Prosiect Gwyrdd, which will see non-recyclable rubbish burned in a Cardiff incineration plant.
"But one councillor in the ruling group, who did not want to be named, says the multi-million pound scheme has huge implications for Newport, which will be tied into a contract for a quarter of a century.
"The councillor said:
"The length of the contract is an issue. We are being asked to look at a contract that is going to affect not just our children, but our children's children.
The amount of waste that would be feeding the incinerator has been in decline."
