As posted by local campaigners Cancel the CONtract on their Facebook page and now supported by Extinction Rebellion:
Over £100m more of OUR MONEY goes up in smoke as latest figures reveal, on this INSANERATOR that nobody ever wanted. Just to be clear - this is now a contract costing ALL OF US, the taxpayers, well over £600m with a waste processing fee of £189 per tonne - TWICE the market rate and THREE TIMES what commercial customers will be charged.
And GCC is still claiming bogus savings against the cost of landfill. Without even mentioning that the cost of landfill included an approx 80% landfill tax to be used for ENVIRONMENTAL purposes, thus giving something back, unlike this deal where it all goes into private pockets.
THIS DEAL GIVES NOTHING BACK EXCEPT TOXIC AND CLIMATE AFFECTING EMISSIONS.
COME ALONG TO JAVELIN PARK ON TUESDAY MORNING EARLY (8th Jan) - let's make it a drive-time event for local radio...
BRING: placards, drums, etc - and bring "MONEY" to burn...
Incinerator protesters target morning rush hour tomorrow and say there 'may end up being traffic mayhem and arrests'
