KLWIN wants to help Norfolk County Council reduce its reliance on landfill without resorting to the more environmentally damaging and socially unacceptable option of incineration.There are proven technologies, better than incineration, which can also produce energy with significantly less pollution.
We support the democratically expressed wishes of West Norfolk’s residents who do not want an inferior solution imposed on their community. The local population would have to live with the consequences and therefore deserve a say in which solution is used. The impacts on environment, health, transport and the local economy make incineration unacceptable. Responsible solutions such as Mechanical and Biological Treatment with Anaerobic Digestion and/or Advanced Composting, used successfully by other authorities, would be supported. It is our objective that Norfolk’s waste is treated in the safest and most environmentally responsible manner, which minimise its impact on people’s health and the environment.
