Comment on waste firms' histories

Link to online version

Full comment to Croydon Guardian below:

The four players vying for the lucrative South London Waste Plan (SLWP) contract have not exactly covered themselves in glory in the past. These schemes are forced through despite massive local opposition. Incineration is a profitable method to dispose of waste, especially if the Government is offering a PFI credits that equate to 50% of the set up costs for an incinerator. Whilst, waste companies see their profits going up, I see cancer rates, low birth weights and lung disease going up if the Council allows this to be built. Health and environmental costs are simply being overlooked when addressing the issue of waste.
