Nottingham Against Incineration and Landfill (NAIL) has been campaigning to stop the proposed expansion of Eastcroft Incinerator for the last year. The group recently stepped up it's campaign and erected a large banner on Sneinton Boulevard. Other activities included a well attended public meeting, a gathering on the Market Square and a picket at a presentation organised by the Waste Recycling Group (WRG) who own the incinerator and has submitted the application for expansion.
â€œThe council should make a bigger effort to provide recycling facilties instead of taking the easy option of burning all our wasteâ€? *
It is expected the council will make a decision on the application early next year. The NAIL campaign will continue to oppose the expansion and promote waste management alternatives.
