Petition Tag - incinerator
LB Sutton currently taking "evidence" on a commercial bid to build an incinerator in Beddington Lane.
As part of the Coseley Eco Park (www.coseleyecopark.com), the land owners have requested permission to build an 'Energy Recovery Facility' using 'gasification' to turn landfill waste into power.
This is basically by EU definition an incinerator. They describe it as 'proven, clean and efficient', even though a recent consultation by Department of Energy & Climate Change concerning Renewable Obligations for 2013-17 describes 'gasification' as:
“. . . emerging and unproven technologies for the treatment of waste biomass and mixed municipal waste where there are number of technical issues to resolve, for example, achieving intended throughput and air emission standards."
Please help stop this facility as it is near homes, schools and a national nature reserve.
Plans for a waste incinerator have been submitted by Grundon Waste Management for the Shore Road site adjacent to the South Inch and adjacent to the City Centre.
People have already made their opposition plain to such a development in massive numbers. Cllr Peter Barrett and Willie Rennie MSP launched a petition against the incinerator.
The Norfolk County Council propose to enter into a contract which will cost their taxpayers £500 mn over its life, which will have a £20.2 mn penalty if the project does not go ahead and for an incinerator the like of which has sent 29 US counties into bankruptcy.
The companies supplying the incinerator will put in very little cash, the bulk coming from PFI funds. Stop vested interest from destroying Council finances.
If you have signed the paper based one, then please do not sign this on-line version as only one of the votes can count.
Manvers area has suffered a lot from industrial pollution in the past. The area is a lot cleaner now. The proposed plant will compromise that. It must be stopped for a number of reasons.
Such as negative health effects, air pollution, increase in traffic, it is to be located in a valley, which is prone to flooding, incompatible usage next to traspenine trail, it will be an eye sore. Please sign, thank you.
North Yorkshire County Council and City of York Council want to give the go-ahead to a private contractor, AmeyCespa, to build and run a major industrial waste management facility, including a large incinerator, to dispose of domestic waste on a single site.
We believe it isn’t needed, it’s out of date and it’s a waste of our money.
It will cost an estimated £900 million over 25 years (to be paid by us – North Yorkshire's rate-payers), and it will tie the county into an outdated technology. The mechanical sorting and anaerobic digester planned for the site will only deal with a small portion of the waste going there – the majority will be burnt in the incinerator, so there will more greenhouse gas emissions.
The Councils have not properly considered any alternatives such as rapidly ramping up the recycling rate, reducing waste, more composting, or smaller multi-site facilities. North Yorkshire is planning to slowly ramp up to 50% recycling in 10 years time – South Oxfordshire is at 70% now!
In October 2010, both Councils will be asked to vote the plan through. This is an opportunity to rethink: Councillors should oppose the plan and seek a thorough review of a wider range of innovative solutions to waste management, including more varied options beyond large-scale incineration. At a time of deep Government spending cuts across the public sector, it would be simply irresponsible to continue with the current plans.

On May 11th 2010 the Independent Reporter, employed by the Scottish Government, overturned the decision made by the Officially elected Highland Councillors and gave the go ahead to CPC Highland Ltd to build the Incinerator in Invergordon.
This decision flys in the face of democracy and is an Environmental and Social injustice.
Phuket is an island in the Andaman sea, its is a small island and much of its income is dependent on tourists flocking to Phuket because of its pristine beaches and natural beauty, not to mention its fantastic nightlife.
But with Phuket's current plastic addiction every day tonnes of plastic waste is being sent Phukets landfill and the incinerator at its maximum the problem is only getting worse with each passing day.
It is up to Phuket citizens and students to join together and help reduce plastic consumption in Phuket.
In July 2008, a Welsh-based company, Cyclamax submitted a planning application to Derbyshire County Council to build a hazardous waste incinerator/gasification plant on Dunston Road in Chesterfield. Derbyshire County Council are expected to make a decision on the application in April 2010. Local residents and business owners are alarmed and concerned about these plans.
The plant will accept 75,000 tonnes of hazardous and non-hazardous types of commercial waste each year - around 17% of this will be recycled and the rest - at least 80%, will be burnt in the incinerator. It will have a main flue of 21 metres and 3 emergency flues/bypass vents that can let out completely unfiltered emissions when the system backs up/breaks down.
There is no long term, real life evidence of the health impact of this type of technology, yet health statistics and research in other areas surrounding incinerators are frightening (look up Professor Paul Connett, Dr van Steenis and reports such as 'An industry blowing up smoke' or 'The Health Impacts of Waste Incinerators' as examples) and there are 30,000 residents and 19 schools within just 2 miles of the proposed site.
As well as health fears the road network around Dunston Road (a country B road) is completely unsuitable and unsafe for an extra 370 vehicle movements per day, which will include an HGV carrying waste at least every 10 minutes. There is likely to be a negative impact on the local economy from many nearby existing businesses saying they will move away and others who will certainly not expand in the area.
The semi-rural location with views across open countryside and greenbelt land will be destroyed for the thousands of people and wildlife that currently enjoy the area.
Highland Council have registered a planning application to create a Waste Transfer Station in Invergordon at the location of the former British Aluminium plant. In addition to that application a private company Combined Power and Heat Highland Ltd have registered an application to build a Waste to Energy Incinerator at the former British Aluminium Plant Car Park.
This incinerator will run 24/7 and process waste from all over the Highlands.
A Petition to prevent the development of an Incinerator being built in Telford.
Coventry City Council, in conjunction with Warwickshire County Council and Solihull Council, has proposed plans to build a new “Super-Incinerator”. This has been done without a public consultation and without a waste strategy from Coventry City Council.
This will affect increasing rates of recycling due to the large and steady flow of waste needed for the incinerator to burn so that contractual obligations can be met.
Incineration produces vast amounts of Carbon Dioxide which contributes to climate change and also emitts dioxins and dust particles harmful to human health.
The 54-tonnes per hour general waste incinerator and 1-tonne per hour radioactive waste incinerator (at Lakeside Estate, Colnbrook, Slough)proposed by Grundon's will pollute an area with a 17 mile radius, affecting the lives of nearly five million people living in Berkshire, Bucks, Surrey and a large section of west London. The major implications are:
A significant increase in cancers, especially childhood leukaemia and many other problems.
Possible increase in birth defects.
Pollution of air, water and soil, emissions of greenhouse gasses.
Radioactive pollution with unknown results.
Increases in asthma and heart disease.
With the air quality levels already below the standards if the EU and WHO, the poorest health records in the South East and the proposed site being within a densely populated area, this is a highly unsuitable location for a highly unsuitable project. The tragedy is, safer methods of waste disposal exist.
We are urging the Council to scrap the proposed incinerator plans and look at safer alternatives.
