Why does UKWIN oppose waste incineration?
The United Kingdom Without Incineration Network opposes the incineration of waste, including via gasification, pyrolysis and cement kilns.

UKWIN has more than 100 member groups and affiliates. If you are interested in finding existing, proposed and defeated mixed waste incinerators and the local campaigns opposing them then check out UKWIN’s interactive map and table.
