A coalition of groups will be picketing against Incinerator development at the offices of Viridor in Kent on Friday 1st March, 11.00am at 42 Kings Hill Ave, Kings Hill, West Malling, ME19 4AJ. Steve Dawe, Press Officer of Kent Green Party, explains:
"Kent Green Party, the Sutton & Croydon Green Party and the Stop the South
London Incinerator Campaign are opposed to all waste incineration, and
want to see waste reduction, re-use, recycling, composting and other
measures to create a zero-waste society. Viridor are planning to build a
large waste incinerator in Sutton, and our groups are campaigning to stop them.
"The general public are welcome to come along and picket with us outside
Viridor's offices in West Malling, Kent, on Friday 1st March at
11:00am(1): 42 Kings Hill Ave, Kings Hill, West Malling, ME19 4AJ.
"All incinerators generate thousands of journeys by heavy goods vehicles
each year, an utterly wasteful activity caused by the failure to re-use
and recycle efficiently in this country. Putting an end to incinerators
and landfill will create more jobs in re-use and recycling throughout the
country, but as usual the Coalition Government is failing to provide the
necessary regulations or leadership."
