Local opposition to incinerator plans

The two proposed sites for a new incinerator have attracted opposition from local groups concerned about the impact on the environment.

Cardiff Against the Incinerator and Stop Newport Incinerator say that a better solution to domestic waste would be to increase recycling targets.

The two bidders, Veolia and Viridor, say that the plans represent a major investment and electricity generated by the incinerator will help power local homes and businesses.
