Zero Waste North West meeting for Rosemount residents – Brooke Park Bowling Club

What do we think about plans to build a gasification-incinerator?

Wednesday 27th November 2013 7.30 pm-9.30pm
Brooke Park Bowling Club House,
Rosemount

Plans to build a gasification-incinerator in Strathfoyle area have stirred memories of Du Pont’s attempt to build a toxic waste incinerator in the city in the early 90s.

That attempt was defeated by a city-wide campaign against the threat to make this city a centre for burning waste in a process that produced toxic fumes and ash as by-products.

Is it time to consider such a public campaign again, given that everyone shares the air affected by emissions from gasification-incineration of waste?

What are the alternatives to gasification-incineration?

A panel of residents of this area, made up of Shiela Downey, Conor Kelly, Marian Farrell and Dave Duggan, will talk about their involvement in the successful early ’90s campaign to stop the building of a toxic waste incinerator and realistic alternatives to gasification-incineration.  The meeting will then focus on the concerns of local residents and further action we might take.

Everyone Welcome.
