Exco man says the move is also in line with the federal government’s requirement for each state to have an incinerator.
Housing and local government minister blames miscommunication for report that project would go ahead.
More than 6,000 families risk danger to health should incinerator project in Kepong proceed, say group who want it to be a campaign issue in GE14.
Why do we need to spend RM1 billion to buy an incinerator when present sanitary landfills can solve all of Kuala Lumpur's waste issues for the next 60 years?
Writer believes it is better to have an industrialised approach to waste rather than a backward solution like landfills, which produce toxins and methane.
Waste-to-energy plants and incinerators are not one and the same, and opposition MPs as well as the general public should read up on the issue first before objecting to it.
Project delayed by more than two years is now revived as two companies bid to build 1,000-tonne incinerators about 3-4km from Taman Beringin in Kepong.
No contract should be awarded to a party to operate the incinerator until the people are satisfied that the technology will not be harmful to them years from now.
