Keep the incinerator closed

Headlining on Radio Kent today and on their website and on the front page of the Adscene:

Green Party activists have called for the permanent closure of an incinerator which is currently out of operation while furnace linings are repaired.

The operator of Allington incinerator, near Maidstone in Kent, said it will be closed until the spring.

"We see this as an opportunity not to reopen the incinerator at all," said Stuart Jeffery, of Maidstone Greens.

Mr Jeffery said there needed to be a radical rethink on rubbish.

"We should be reducing our rubbish and aim for a zero waste society if possible," he said.

"You can't just have a quick fix, which this incinerator has always been."
