Don't Incinerate -- Reduce!!
Incineration is a controversial method of waste disposal. If we want to be the Greenest city, we will not get there by incinerating ANY waste. A more comprehensive plan to encourage reduction not only of household waste, but also restaurant and other business waste. Extended food waste collection, consumer education and pay-to-throw programs would all be part of this.

I really do not feel comfortable with incineration. There are so many toxins and nano particles these days that I'm not sure incineration will be able to keep up with removing these before they are released into the air.
agreed Matt. good last resort option.
Matthew Boulton commented
It's not true that incineration precludes green-ness. Yes, it is certainly the last green resort (Reduce > Reuse > Recycle > Recover), but it's better than landfill and provides a way to recover some of the energy spent in manufacture and recycling.
