Letters to the editor...Region incinerator a cause for concern

Dear editor, Halton Region is pursuing the possibility of building one of the newer types of incinerator. Each type proposes heating mixed waste, extracting some energy and burying the leftovers. This is a huge undertaking that could limit our options for the future. Before regional council makes its decision I'm hoping that the citizens of the region will take part in a discussion of the issues by writing in to the newspaper and sharing any letters written to our elected representatives. Some of the things we need to examine are: 1) Health effects 2) Cost: With estimates of $750$800 million what will the taxpayer pay? 3) Energy loss 4) Climate change: Can we afford to put more CO2 in the atmosphere? 5) Alternatives: If we can create more jobs, use safer methods of waste reduction that make money for industry, should we burn these resources? It's time to get involved. Barbara Halsall Protect Our Water and Environmental Resources (P.O.W.E.R.) Halton Hills
