Incinerators spew emissions that can cause asthma, cancer, congenital defects and cognitive impairments in children.
That’s why 75 Durham doctors have spoken out against incineration.
Durham Region wants to spend $272 million of your money to build a garbage-burning incinerator in Clarington.
If the Region gets its way, that’ll mean:
• 140,000 tonnes of garbage up in smoke, every day, to start, with plans to increase capacity in future
• At least 77 fully-loaded tractor-trailers on our roads
• Almost a quarter-billion in taxpayer dollars spent on a public-private partnership (P3)
• 68 schools within a ten-kilometer radius of incinerator Ground Zero
Is that the future you want for your children?
There are better ways to manage Durham’s waste stream!
• Expand recycling
• Green Bin programs
• More waste diversion
