Waste To Power Plant A Waste?

“The plant will need to meet very rigorous standards and we are confident the Reporter will see the merits of the scheme."

The optimistic reaction from the developer proposing a waste-to-power incinerator for Invergordon following a Scottish Government reporter's decision to investigate further.

The overwhelming impression you get from those against it and the subsequent press coverage is that folk are worried about the health and environmental impacts. I'm reasonably sure these can be addressed. However, my understanding is the incinerator would burn waste we can get the manufacturers to re-use or recycle. Surely we should be trying to reduce waste? Won't an incinerator simply create a market for more rubbish?
