CRAI protest against Poolbeg incinerator, Saturday 30th January

29 Jan 2010

NO MONSTER INCINERATOR IN DUBLIN BAY

Protest organised by the Combined Residents Againist Incineration

 

11.30am, Saturday Jan 30th

At Dublin Waste to Energy Project, Clanna Gael, Sean Moore Road, Ringsend, D4

 

You are invited to bring friends, children, family, workmates- we need a big turnout!

 

The incinerator is anti-recycling:

Dublin City Council plan to build one of the biggest incinerators in Europe in Poolbeg- it will have a capacity for burning 600,000 tonnes of waste yet Dublin only produces a fraction of that amount.

 

The Public Private Partnership means that 320,000 tonnes is guaranteed by the councils to the private operator of the incinerator. How will this encourage recycling or reduction of waste? Incineration goes against the principles of reduce, re-use, recycle. Dublin City Council will in all likelihood be less inclined to continue to promote recycling.

 

It will ruin Dublin Bay:

The incinerator will have the same foot print as Croke Park and be the height of Liberty Hall.

 

Too many health dangers:

There are potential health dangers as implications of the emission of toxic micro-particles to the population of Dublin. The plant will produce 10,000 tonnes per month of toxic bottom ash.

 

It is a waste of Money:

The incinerator has already cost 120 million. How much more of your money will be spent on this white elephant?

 

We can stop this incinerator. Let's keep up the pressure!
