Say No To Burning Waste for Energy sign now

The energy-from-waste incinerator technology is not an environmental or sustainable way to manage solid waste.
In addition to health concerns, incinerators are a disincentive to resource conservation and waste reduction, as they require stipulated volumes of waste over long periods of time. Far more energy could be saved, with the attendant reduction in pollution and health impacts, through materials re-use, recycling and composting.
Burning waste is not renewable energy production and should not be permitted to compete unfairly with truly renewable sources of energy. When compared with energy producing technologies incineration contributes the greatest amount of greenhouse gas emissions per kilowatt-hour of electricity produced. The transportation of the waste to the facility produces environmental damage on our streets and waterways. The massive use of ground water threatens our drinking water resource. The emissions that will rain down on the surrounding communities will affect our health and the health of our bays and aquatic life.
THEREFORE, we, the undersigned, urge the Village of Freeport and any authority having jurisdiction to oppose the current Waste To Energy proposal for Freeport. We call on the leaders in Freeport and New York to 1.) Adopt a healthy and sustainable resource management policy for the 21st century that prioritizes waste reduction and materials reuse through comprehensive recycling, composting and product take-back schemes for discards 2.) Adopt a sustainable energy program that encourages conservation, efficiency and uses of renewable resources for the production of energy.
