Maximum recycling, composting and other advanced processes are indeed the genuinely "green" alternatives.
Meanwhile, residents and local businesses in Cardiff face the prospect of a huge incinerator being built in Trident Park, spewing out 350,000 tonnes of burning waste and pollutants all your round, ferried in by daily fleets of lorries - courtesy of the Plaid Cymru and LibDem-controlled Cardiff County Council.
And all this to the profit of big business, subsidised by local taxpayers through the humorously named "Prosiect Gwyrdd" (Green Project).
Now that the National Assembly's petitions committee and the Local Government Ombudsman for Wales are considering widespread local objections, I have a question for all candidates and parties in the forthcoming Assembly elections.
Before polling day, will you make your position clear on building giant waste incineration schemes next to residential areas - are you for or against? ¦ Robert Griffiths Chair, Cardiff Against the Incinerator
