Letter: Essex waste

The Independent Online
Sir: Polly Toynbee made an error in her manifesto for recycling ("The battle of incinerators vs recyclers", 16 September). There is no proposal to build four incinerators in Essex. We know that time is running out for Essex waste. So all 15 Essex councils are working together on a future strategy including waste minim- isation and recycling, and all the other waste options that are necessary because our landfill is running out.

Essex residents have been involved in commenting on the strategy, through area liaison groups for north, west and south Essex, and through a comprehensive booklet which is still available to your readers.
