Anger over plans to burn waste at plant, UK
Published: 08 June 2006

Campaigners have hit out at plans to begin burning waste at the Rugby Cement plant - all the way from London. Waste could be transported from the capital and burned at the Long Lawford Road site as the part of the concrete-making process. 
 
Protesters have attacked the plans as a Victorian solution to waste disposal and say residents are being used as "guinea pigs". 
 
The plans were unveiled at a meeting attended by Cemex, councillors and representatives from Rugby Borough Council, Warwickshire County Council and members of the community cement forum.
