    “No Monster Incinerator in Washington“
    is a community group brought together
    to oppose the application by developers
    Rolton Kilbride to build a waste incinerator, located at the Hillthorn Farm site in Washington. Rolton Kilbride have confirmed that they intend to burn plastic at the Washington plant which would have a 215,000tonne capacity. Burning plastic is not a form of
    renewable energy and goes against
    recent government campaigns and
    initiatives with respect to CO2 emissions
    and environmental policies. This site would produce quarter of a million
    tonnes of CO2 each year, amounting to
    some 8 million tonnes over the lifetime
    of the facility. Rolton Kilbride have failed
    to provide evidence of a similar sized site using the same technology that is in
    existence today. Far from being proven,
    this type of technology has been shown
    not to work.
    Rolton Kilbride have failed to raise the
    awareness of Residents in the
    surrounding areas of Washington and
    Sunderland: -
    • The proposed plant would have a 57
    meter (187feet) chimney stack which,
    with its plume, would be visible from a
    long distance and a major distraction to all.
    • HGVs bringing waste to the site and taking ash away, some of it toxic, would
    lead to a substantial increase in traffic
    on already congested roads. • It would be very close to schools and residential
    areas, any problems from pollution or a
    malfunction at the Plant site could have severe health consequences
    for residents. Rolton Kilbride have failed in their proposed planning applications for similar proposed sites at Swindon and Northampton.

    I am a resident of Concord in Washington and am really worried about the incinerator being proposed. I believe it will not only effect the health of Washington residents but those of Boldon and Sunderland too due to wind direction. I hope we come together to fight this monster.
