York Residents Against Incineration

Work is now underway on the construction of the incinerator following a ground-breaking ceremony yesterday at the site.

The ceremony was attended by Councillor Chris Metcalfe, Executive Member for waste and countryside services from North Yorkshire County Council, and Cllr Tracey Simpson-Laing, Cabinet Member for Communities at City of York Council.

Cllr Laing hailed the largest ever capital investment the Council had ever made and declared it to be “proud to be marking this ‘ground breaking’ milestone with everyone who has helped to make this happen”. She also hailed the “hundreds” of jobs created for the £1.4bn investment – despite most of these being during construction, and largely brought in to the area (read our comment “Incinerator plan will cost jobs”).
