Join Zero Waste BC at a rally against the the Canadian Energy-From-Waste Coalition (CEFWC) on Wednesday April 10th at 12:30pm. These incinerator salesmen will be in town to sell their pollution to the region.

“These incinerator companies are selling our elected officials pollution, claiming they have new and improved burn technologies that are both safe, and compatible with recycling,” said Helen Spiegelman of Zero Waste Vancouver, “and we are not buying it!”
