Re: [greenyes] RE: [GAIA]ZW goals without incineration?

Don't start celebrating just yet. While Greenpeace Argentina has managed to get the issue on the table for discussion by getting the Zero Waste bill introduced into the legislature of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires (CABA), its chances of actual passage are widely considered very slim.
I don't think incineration is considered a serious option for waste (other than infectious wastes) by most policymakers in CABA. Given the ecological zoning process now in place in the City, any incinerator within city limits would be opposed and delayed by years. And it appears that the surrounding Province of Buenos Aires (PBA) is unwilling to create an incinerator to receive CABA wastes. Right now there is a considerable battle over simply replacing the landfill that serves CABA.

Dear Veronica,

This is quite exciting to hear about Buenos Aires' progress towards Zero

There is some information about model Zero Waste resolutions, U.S. cities
with Zero Waste resolutions and other policy-oriented resources on the GRRN
website at:

Keep us posted.

Subject: [GAIA]ZW goals without incineration?


we are currently persuing a ZW law to be approved in Buenos Aires city. And
I would need to know which of the communities, States, etc., that have ZW
commitments with waste diversion goals have been achieving them without
incineration. I need to compile information on other places that have ZW
goals but without MSW incineration. Could you help me?

Thanks in advance!
