National Environmental Organization Opposes Incinerator Proposal in Frederick Co. MD

I recently received the following press release and have published for your information. Frederick County Commissioners are presently reviewing options on how to handle future waste disposal for the community and the building of an Incinerator is one of the options. However, the review and decision making process is still taking place and no decision has been made.

The two Democratic Commissioners have agreed to submit a series of columns on this issue for publication on our site. We have published Board President Jan Gardner's first column entitled "Talking Trash".

We will be publishing on August 6, 2008, columns from both Commissioners Kai Hagen and Jan Gardner. For our Frederick County, Maryland viewers, we invite you to read their columns, stay informed and let your county commissioner know how you feel waste should be disposed of in the future in Frederick County.

    Clean Water Action, a national environmental grassroots organization with over a million members, is knocking on doors in Frederick County and urging residents to oppose a proposal to build an incinerator to burn both Frederick and Carroll County's solid waste.

    Clean Water Action is asking its Frederick County members to contact Commissioners to request that they institute a 5-year moratorium on the construction of an incinerator in order to study alternative solutions like a "Resource Recovery Park" for waste diversion and recycling.

    The group's efforts support those of the Friends of Frederick County and their local allies who have been fighting the incinerator idea, and who have already put forward alternative plans based on diversion, reuse and recycling. (Press release to follow)
