The UK Without Incineration Network (UKWIN) is embarking on their most ambitious campaign yet – calling for a moratorium on new incineration capacity! And they are asking for your help.

There is now more committed incineration capacity than available residual waste to burn, so it is vital that no more incinerators are built in the UK.

UKWIN are asking people to write to their MP asking them to support the call for a moratorium on new incineration capacity.  The emissions, the impact on climate change, the harm to recycling and the fact it simply isn’t needed all make incineration an expensive folly that is not required.

The UKWIN web page contains the wording of the proposed Early Day Motion (EDM) to be tabled at Parliament and four briefing documents that support the Motion, as well as a template you can use to e-mail your MP.

UKWIN have been supporting the local campaign against the proposed gasification plant in South Street in Whiteinch.

Thank you for your support and spread the word amongst your networks.
