Mansfield, United Kingdom
The United Kingdom Without Incineration Network (UKWIN) opposes the incineration of waste, including via gasification, pyrolysis and cement kilns. Incineration depresses recycling, destroys valuable resources, releases greenhouse gasses, and is a waste of money. Incineration has no place in the zero waste closed-loop circular economy towards which we should be working.
Founded in March 2007, UKWIN’s role is to help individuals and groups to develop the case against incineration, and in doing so support the UK-wide movement in favour of more sustainable waste management. UKWIN’s current membership includes more than 85 local groups campaigning against waste incineration and in favour of zero waste.
