Big Green Climate Festival: Stop the Edmonton Incinerator March

Starting outside Edmonton Green Station

202109 stop edmonton incinerator march

Meet at Edmonton Green Station at 1pm, wear a black mask.

PRESS RELEASE 15 SEPTEMBER 2021

A group of local residents staged a die-in demonstration in front of the Enfield Civic Centre on Wednesday 15 September to highlight the fact that waste incinerators can have lethal effects on local people’s health as well as on the whole planet. If built, the new Edmonton incinerator will burn 700,000 tonnes of waste per year – a significant addition to local air pollution and carbon emissions.

The Campaign to Stop the Edmonton Incinerator is calling on the residents of Enfield to join the protest march starting at 1pm from Edmonton Green on Saturday 25 September. Supported by many North London community groups and organizations, the campaign is asking the North London Waste Authority to urgently pause and review its plans for the re-build.

The campaigners reject Enfield Council’s claim that it has no power to influence the NLWA’s plans. After all, this huge new incinerator will be in Enfield. The council could withdraw its support to the project until it is properly reviewed, given the many question marks regarding its usefulness and safety.

Enfield council needs to stop passing the buck and start acting responsibly. This means listening to the residents, the scientists and the medical researchers who say that burning rubbish is harmful. The residents expect their council to view the health of people and of future generations as its highest priority and act accordingly.

Enfield council has a great opportunity to encourage the introduction of modern methods and technologies to deal with our rubbish. By Reducing, Reusing, Repairing and Recycling discarded materials, waste incineration can rapidly be extinguished, and the sooner the better!
