The city of Cleveland is proposing to build a garbage incinerator at the Ridge Road Transfer Station.
It would involve the cooking of trash at high temperatures and the release of toxic pollutants into the air.
Recycling and reuse of materials is more energy efficient than combustion,and could create hundreds of jobs.
The city should not gamble millions of dollars on unproven technology that could endanger my family's health.
On a clear and warm summer night I have had the unfortunate experience of driving on 90 late at night and seen what the factories are dumping into the air. One minute the air is clear and the next its like the fog moved in from over the lake. It smellled so foul I could almost taste it.
I see history repeating itself. They will find a way to dump pollution into the air when they think no one is watching.
So much for being a green city by a blue lake.
