We the undersigned demand that the Scottish Government outlaws incineration, gasification and pyrolysis of all waste, on the grounds that these `technologies` are demonstrably unsafe for human health and the environment, and instead invests in the necessary infrastructure to make it easy and practical for people and businesses to reduce, reuse and recycle their waste, while simultaneously seeking international agreements to ensure that products that are manufactured both here and abroad are designed to enable this to happen.
This petition is sponsored by the organising committee of the Scottish No-Burn Action Day, which is encouraging people to meet at the Scottish Parliament on Thursday 1 October 2009 at 1pm to show their rejection of waste incineration in all its forms. PLEASE JOIN US.
