A proposal to build the largest trash burning incinerator in the U.S. suffered a major setback recently when a Baltimore regional coalition of governments and institutions voted to terminate its energy-purchasing contract with the proposed Energy Answers Incinerator in Baltimore.

Destiny Watford, Free Your Voice leader, “This is a really big step for us. I’m excited that purchasing committee voted to withdrawal their support for the incinerator. This decision gives us the opportunity to work with the purchasing committee for a truly healthy and sustainable project in Baltimore that respects our human right to clean air”.
