Incinerator will blight our lives

SHAMBOLIC and secretive handling of rail bids has cost the taxpayers of England and Wales more than £40m already.
It’s not likely to be a one-off. Here in South East Wales the Prosiect Gwyrdd incinerator project displays the same secrecy, and naIve acceptance of assurances given by waste companies bidding for long-term public contracts. Civil servants who run Prosiect Gwyrdd are out of control. This so-called ‘green’ partnership is racking up huge bills which ratepayers of our five counties will have to meet for the next 25 years. What will we get ? Incinerators which destroy our recycling policy, risk our health and pump out greenhouse gas. Let’s hope our elected councillors, AMs and MPs can stop this project before it ruins our health, environment and our local finances.
