Shoot: Toxics Action at Verol Recycling Limburg the Netherlands

GP01NN1
Greenpeace activists block the gates of the entrance of the waste-processing firm Verol Recycling Limburg. The blockade is a protest against the export of dangerous waste to Belgium. For the collectors of toxic waste the export is a profitable trade. They can earn a lot of money with offering the waste to the four kilns of the cement industry in Belgium, where the costs for incineration is considerable lower than in the Netherlands. In Belgium the requirements for incineration and check on is insufficient. Chemical waste is for the cement industry a cheap fuel. According to the Dutch legislation chemical waste must be incinerated in special equipped incinerators, in this case at AVR (Incinerator Rijnmond). Greenpeace demands that Verol stops immediately with the export of chemical waste to the Belgium cement industry.
