Incinerator campaigners claim their plans to tackle Cornwall's waste mountain could save us £10 million.

Pirate FM revealed the burner at St Dennis will go ahead after judges refused an appeal.

Now the Waste Forum is presenting other technologies like better sorting, anerobic digestion and a recycling push, to the Council.

Spokesman Rod Tomms says the fight goes on: "At the moment, there is a very, very high price for recycled material. A tonne of milk bottles is about the same price as a tonne of iron. What are we proposing to do with it? Chuck it into a furnace and burn it".
