Back in 2001 Greenpeace occupied the Bernard Road incinerator and painted “Toxic Crime” on the chimney.
At that time the incinerator was the most polluting in the country and there were grave concerns about the health effects. The emission of dioxins were known to cause cancer, heart disease, liver damage, hormonal disruption, reproductive disorders and much more.
People living near the incinerator want to know the reason for the delay. Residents have a right to know what extra risks they face to their health by living near an incinerator.
Sheffield Green Party is urging Public Health England to publish an interim report to explain what they have discovered so far.
