The Vancouver Sun published an excellent article entitled "Why Burning Garbage is the Best Option" written by Mayor Lois E. Jackson of Delta, British Columbia, who also serves as the chairwoman of the Metro Vancouver board of directors. The Mayor states that independent advice provided to the Board suggests a modern waste-to-energy facility which generates heat and electricity from the combustion of garbage is the best way to dispose of the trash we can't recycle. Metro Vancouver is currently considering construction of six new waste-to-energy plants to manage the waste currently going to landfills. Mayor Jackson asserts unequivocally that, "Unlike landfills, air emissions from waste-to-energy facilities can be continuously monitored and regulated. Our air emissions would remain the same or become even smaller with waste-to-energy. Waste-to-energy is also the best option for reducing the gases that cause global warming."
