Organizer/AuthorCoalition for Healthy Communities & Environmental Justice
For almost 20 years, Integrated Environmental Systems (IES) has been operating medical waste incinerators in our community. These incinerators release many poisons, including dioxin, into the air we breathe. It is a well known fact that dioxin causes cancer and other illnesses. IES must stop all incineration and replace it with safer, non-incineration technologies to protect community health and workers' jobs. Come to the community speak out and tell IES what you think! ************************************************* Por casi 20 años una incineradora de desechos médicos ha estado operando en nuestra comunidad. Ubicado en la High Street cerca del Puente de High Street, las incineradoras operadas por Integrated Environmental Systems (IES) emiten venenos, incluyendo dioxin, al aire que respiramos. Es un hecho conocido que dioxin causa cáncer. IES debe de parar toda incineración y reemplazarla con tecnología más segura de no incineración para protejer la salud comunitaria y los trabajos. Ayude a que paren de quemar. ¡Venga a decirle a IES lo que usted piensa!
