Dublin Sinn Féin to launch new waste management Charter

16 February, 2004

Dublin Sinn Féin will launch a new waste management charter entitled 'Towards Zero Waste' on Tuesday 17th February at 11am in the Earl of Kildare Hotel, Kildare Street, Dublin 2. Attending the press conference will be party representative for Dublin South East Daithí Doolan, Arthur Morgan TD, Willie Clarke MLA and Dublin EU candidate Mary Lou McDonald.

The launch of the waste management charter follows a protest, in opposition to the proposed incinerator in Ringsend, on the East Link Bridge on Friday evening which was attended by more than 100 people.

Speaking prior to the launch Daithí Doolan said:

"This charter clearly outlines how Sinn Féin will turn the current waste management crisis around. This charter is based not on incineration or landfill but on reducing, reusing and recycling of waste. The government agenda of burning or burying our waste is just not good enough. This charter will challenge that simplistic view and will look to deal with the crisis in a holistic approach, and will deal with the causes and not just the consequences of the waste crisis.

"We will be urging people to take the charter, campaign for it, get support for it and implement it."ENDS
