Incinerator News (of a sort)!

January 21st, 2015 by Clive

The incinerator has become the latest hot topic in this part of the world for many reasons… (Previous posts on this subjectJavelin Park – Latest).

One recently discussed article in the Stroud News & Journal stated:

Gloucestershire County Council’s own figures suggest the MAJORITY of waste due to be burnt in the Javelin Park incinerator will be recyclable, compostable or reusable.

The full article (here) goes on to explain:

On average, the report shows that 67 per cent of the black bag rubbish, also known as residual waste, collected by Gloucester City Council, Cotswold District Council and Tewkesbury Borough Council is either recyclable, compostable or reusable.

Assuming a similar proportion of the residual waste collected by other local authorities in the county is recoverable, the report would suggest that a majority of the waste due to be burnt in the planned incinerator will in fact be recyclable, biodegradable or reusable.

So you’re saying that they will be burning black-bag-waste and because we don’t recycle properly, lots of recyclable waste will be burned!

I am against the incinerator for many reasons, but the argument that they will be burning recyclable waste because folks don’t bother to recycle properly doesn’t seem entirely relevant to me.

The Council are responsible in so much as they have failed to convince local people to recycle and of course we can argue that the system (especially here in Gloucester) is less than ideal (the recycle bins are horrible) but in reality my household throws away almost zero recyclable waste… We do have to run around a fair bit to deposit things like batteries, cardboard, clothes etc and the resulting storage means that my shed is now a large recycling plant and my tools live indoors, but it IS possible, (and the services are improving at the moment).

There are lots of valid reasons to oppose the incinerator, but this seems like a silly argument to me… If for no other reason than the fact that this particular problem can be solved (with or without the incinerator).
