As you consider your opinion you may wish to consider new research which suggests that incinerator plants could damage fertility of children see here.
Research indicates that the value of your property is affected by proximity to an incinerator plant - click here to download the report in PDF format (see paragraph 3.23 Figure 3.1).
Building an incinerator is the easy option for those responsible for getting rid of the waste - in fact it is the lazy option. There are alternatives but they just take too much effort to implement.
GAIN, (the Guildford Anti-Incinerator Network), was formed by residents in September 2000 as the result of an application to build a 225,000 tonne plant at Slyfield. Details of their campaign can be found at this web site: www.no-incinerator.org.uk.
UKWIN (UK WITHOUT INCINERATION NETWORK) is an independent organisation representing a network of groups opposing the expansion of waste incineration in the UK - their website - www.ukwin.org.uk contains significant research into the health issues and alternative.
The choice is yours - you can let Surrey County Council pollute our environment against all the rules or your can choose the alternative means to get rid of the waste because it has to go somewhere!!
Please register your support here and to be kept informed of the next critical actions.
