New data reveals the carbon pollution produced by Scotland's waste incinerators, which have been criticised by green groups.
Over 30,000 tonnes of waste put out every year for recycling in Scotland end up being burnt in incinerators and causing climate pollution.
Plans to treble the amount of waste burnt in ten new incinerators across Scotland could prevent the Scottish Government from meeting its recycling targets.
Scotland’s failure to ban waste dumping could give England a “£100 million landfill tax gift”, an industry body is warning.
Eleven huge waste incinerators are planned across Scotland, prompting warnings about health, pollution and recycling.
