The Green Party is hitting out at the planned increase in capacity at the Poolbeg incinerator in Dublin.
It says it would have a hugely negative effect on local residents and would lead to at least 18 more trucks per day passing through the area.
The comments come after the news that Covanta - the U.S. firm operating the facility - is to apply to boost incineration capacity at Poolbeg by 90,000 tonnes per annum.
Green Party Councillor Claire Byrne says this latest development is disappointing, but not surprising.
