Is your community about to get burned?

Everyone is welcome to a free public information session at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 15 at the Gale Centre, 4171 Fourth Avenue, Niagara Falls.

Guest Speaker will be Liz Benneian, founder of the Ontario Zero Waste Coalition. Learn why incineration poses a danger to human health and our agricultural lands and what the alternatives are to burning waste — alternatives that can also boost the economy.

Hear about how citizens in Thorold defeated an incinerator proposal and what we need to do now to ensure that an incinerator isn’t built in another Niagara community.

The evening is sponsored by No Burn Niagara.

    Incineration is obsolete technology, hugely expensive, and environmentally risky. It is hard to believe that with all the advances in science and technology, we are still burning or burying our garbage just like we did 50,000 years ago. There’s got to be a better way.
