Campaign: Support the call for an incineration tax!

The Government has announced that they are considering an incineration tax for their forthcoming Budget, scheduled for 29th October 2018. Details on why this would be a good idea and a template for writing to your MP can be found at: http://ukwin.org.uk/bin/

Why does UKWIN oppose waste incineration?

UKWN LogoThe United Kingdom Without Incineration Network opposes the incineration of waste, including via gasification, pyrolysis and cement kilns. Incineration depresses recycling (see our evidence), destroys valuable resources, releases greenhouse gasses, and is a waste of money. Incineration has no place in the zero waste closed-loop circular economy we should be working towards.
