WASTE cannot simply be legislated away, environment minister Dick Roche told Green TD Ciaran Cuffe. Recycling was an issue we must work on, he said, before suggesting use of an energy source to deal with waste.
Mr Cuffe replied: "The Minister means incineration." He accused Mr Roche of hypocrisy and said his attempt to wrap the green flag around him was sullied by his adoption of a 'burn it or bury it' strategy.
