Letter to Ministers of Health and Environment Sept. 15, 2011

The problems with the Durham incinerator project remain despite government agency approvals. Now, there are new problems coming to light, over and above previous concerns that were never acknowledged and addressed by Durham Region and the Province.

The attached letter (PDF) from September 15, 2011 sets out the concerns with the current approvals, and the actions (or lack of action) by Durham Region. It is a good summary of the history and wider picture of the incinerator issue.

This letter also reminds the Minister of Health that she has a responsibility to examine the health impacts of projects like the incinerator.

The Ontario Zero Waste Coalition presentation (PDF) dated April 27 2011 was made to Ontario Ministry of the Environment waste policy planners. It gives proposals to embark on the road to Zero Waste and end incineration in Ontario.
