I would be fascinated to understand better which is actually better for the environment; incineration of food and garden waste to create electricity or whatever it is that they do with it when they recycle it.

Another great question. Would also need to consider the environmental impact of incineration + generation (SELCHP) vs landfill. I suspect the type of material being recycled will be pertinent too so probably not an easy question to answer.

Call me a cynic, if you will, but worthy though these questions are, I suspect that the council is more concerned with which mix of options will save money. Is it cheaper to use SELCHP than recycle the same waste? I think it may be but would love to see some figures.
