The Tories have built a huge Biological Treatment Plant in Basildon and locals now have lorries hurtling through the town to deal with and a terrible smell. The Tories promised they would be able to sell the pellets created at the plant but no one wants to buy them. The latest plan is to build another plant at Rivenhall to incinerate the pellets, so the waste will have to be shifted between the plants on the already congested A12.
We need to start caring for our environment. A labour led essex would invest heavily in recyling, protecting our environment and safeguarding our future.
