About

Welcome to the UK WITHOUT INCINERATION NETWORK

UKWIN is an independent organisation representing a network of groups opposing the expansion of waste incineration in the UK. The aim of the Network is to provide information and act as a coordinating focus for local community groups and members of the public who are campaigning against the building of incinerators or facilities to produce Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) or Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) in the UK.

UKWIN aims to:
• Provide an information resource on incineration, including the manufacture and use of refuse derived fuels, and will also include signposts to sustainable alternatives to incineration.
• Provide a website which will have as an essential function the provision of a library (defined as a catalogue of sources of information) to which members of the Network may make contributions.http://ukwin.org.uk/
• Provide an email contact list, and host an email discussion forum for members of the Network.
• Act as a first point of contact, including a non-website contact facility (phone number and postal address), for persons and organisations enquiring about issues in connection with incineration, and thus able to handle enquiries passed on by members of the Network and other environmental organisations.

Membership is free of charge, donations are gratefully accepted.
