Neighboring county being courted by a company that wants to build a new waste incinerator, just to build, not operate.
Any here have experience with these?
Below is pasted some comments from opposition.
The incinerator is being proposed by a company called Green First, and may be run by a company called Kovanta (which has a very bad reputation; lots of violations, and lots of fines ... once one of these facilities opens, about your only recourse is air pollution fines, but you can't shut them down!).
By the company's own admission, they will burn up to 1800 tons of waste per day, including tires (workers pull every 10th tire, claimed the CEO at a meeting last week) and plastics.
Also mercury from household trash gets reduced to particles so small it can be breathed.
Is this the way landfill space problems will be handled?
