Do Energy from Waste plants really discourage

2018-11-22  One of the most common arguments against Energy from Waste (EfW) plants is that they discourage recycling. It is often assumed that the burning of waste will lead the public to forgo their eco-friendly habits entirely, especially if EfW is seen to be easier and more economically feasible than traditional recycling efforts because, for example, it does not necessitate the sorting of materials.
