|Date published||October 2013|
|Summary text/ abstract||Waste incineration undermines recycling. Rather than operating in tandem – where recyclables are recycled and only non-recyclables are burned – incineration and recycling typically compete for the same waste materials, the same government funds, and the same waste management contracts. This conflict is particularly clear in so-called "waste-to-energy" incinerators, and is also true for burners that do not recover energy. Despite the fact that incinerators are below recycling in the waste hierarchy, they are very often prioritized above recycling at the local level, and as a result, they have had a consistently negative impact on waste prevention and recycling efforts, as well as on workers who make a living from recycling.|
