Petition Impose a moratorium on the building of new waste incineration plants

We want the Government to take action to move away from greenhouse gas emissions from waste incineration. We concerned that further builds will mean we exceed the almost 45% of UK waste that is currently incinerated.

More details

We believe the construction of new waste incinerators jeopardizes our commitments to the Paris Agreement and could even lead to the UK actively sourcing perfectly reusable and recyclable material just to burn. There could also be consequences to air quality in the UK if any more are granted permission.
