Message from Haringey Clean Air Group:

Your council, Haringey, is burning plastic when they could be recycling. They’re also building a new Bigger waste incinerator near you (https://ukwin.org.uk/incinerators/) that will burn hundreds of thousands of tonnes of waste each year and produce the same amount of CO2.

There are plans for 50 new incinerators nationally by 2030. They’ll double the UK’s incineration capacity and lock us into an additional 10 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. Many of them will be located in the country's most disadvantaged areas. One of these areas is Edmonton.

The Edmonton incinerator, which takes waste from 7 north London boroughs, including Haringey, is coming to the end of its life and plans are to replace it with an even BIGGER one which will last for decades. It will burn even more plastic and have devastating impacts on air quality in this community.

If your local area doesn’t generate enough waste, the council will have to to truck it in from elsewhere or pay penalties to the incinerator operator.

This is a health, social and intergenerational justice issue given the location and lifetime of the incinerator.

Let’s March together to STOP THE BURN and Stop the Edmonton Incinerator!

Sign the petition to our council to Pause the new Incinerator construction and Review the evidence:
