Free Screening Of 'Trashed'

Followed by debate on use of incinerators

Merton Friends of the Earth are staging a free public screening of the film "Trashed", featuring Jeremy Irons as the narrator.

The film uncovers the problem of the huge amounts of waste that are generated around the world and their impact on the natural environment and our health and well-being.

The film reviews how different countries are attempting to deal with this problem, including the use of incinerators.

Merton FoE says the issue is particularly pertinent at the moment as Merton Council is a member of the South West London Waste Consortium, which is commissioning the construction of an incinerator in Beddington in the Wandle Valley Regional Park.

After the screening of the film there will be an informed discussion with a panel of local experts. It takes places at 7.30pm on Friday (February 13) at St Joseph's Hall in Park Road, Colliers Wood.

Entrance is free and there will be refreshments. Donations are welcome to cover the cost of the screening.

Any profit will be donated to the Campaign to Stop the South London Incinerator in Beddington.
