Support GAIA’s call for the European Commission to prevent new incinerators in Europe. The text reads: “As European citizens we ask the European Commission to limit the construction of new incinerators. Incineration competes with recycling, and evidence shows that many EU countries already have more incineration capacity than waste to burn. Instead we ask you to take measures to change incentives in order to reduce, redesign, reuse and recycle waste as close as possible to where it has been generated. If Europe is to achieve the Resource Efficiency goals by 2020, no new incinerators should be built.”
