Incinerator Information Session March 2, 2010

Incinerator Information Session March 2, 2010

Over 110 people attended the Incinerator Injustice information session Tuesday March 2 in Courtice, making it a successful evening. The session also attracted visitors from Toronto and Simcoe County, where irresponsible waste management is also an urgent issue.

The evening was organized by a coalition of Durham Region residents and organizations — www.ZeroWaste4ZeroBurning.ca, www.DurhamEnvironmentWatch.org, www.DurhamCLEAR.ca and www.DurhamElection2010.ca. The organizers wish to thank all involved, including the volunteers at Faith United Church.

Zero Waste 4 Zero Burning Comments on Proposed Revision to Ontario Guideline A-7

Note: the following text is not an endorsement of incineration in any form. However, by taking advantage of the opportunity to influence Ontario government policy on incinerator approvals we could possibly be making incineration harder to establish in Ontario.

Comments on proposed Guideline A-7 - Air Pollution Control, Design and Operation Guidelines for Municipal Waste Thermal Treatment Facilities (EBR 010-5887).
