Irish Examiner - 27/01/05
Fragrant candles no answer to incinerators

I WISH to tell Irish people who are worried about waste incineration that I have the misfortune to live next to one of France’s many incineration units.

I reside only a few hundred yards from a gigantic chimney that constantly emits foul odours day and night, with unclear explanations as to the health consequences.

We are told that it is correctly regulated, but I find that hard to believe as the smell is often unbearable.

When you are forced to close your windows and shutters and burn fragrant candles, there is a problem.

We need an urgent national recycling programme at all levels.

Otherwise we risk burning away our future.
