E-M:/ Protest puts HEAT on Hamtramck Incinerator Permit



With only two weeks left for public comment on the Hamtramck Medical Waste Incinerator, HEAT (the Hamtramck Environmental Action Team) is holding a demonstration/protest in front of the facility.
 
Its at 10 AM Dec 21st (Tuesday Morning) at Conant and Vincent Streets in Hamtramck.
 
"I don't care if it is 4 days before Christmas its important to show the owners of the incinerator and the state that the community does not want a new weaker permit for this old out of compliance facility" said City Councilmember  Rob Cedar
 
State Senator Martha Scott will be on hand with local residents, community leaders and representivies from major environmental groups to protest the operation of this pollution source that has never been in compliance with their 1999 consent agreement and wants to redefine the incinerator by calling it a co-combuster allowed to burn up to 21 tons per day of pathological, chemotherapy, pharmaceutical and other special medical waste products.
 
Cider, coffee and donuts will be available. 
 
Hope to see you there,
 
Rob Cedar
Director, HEAT Hamtramck Environmental Action Team
