Today is the deadline for submitting objections for a proposed incinerator in Cork Harbour.
Waste management company Indaver, has proposed a waste-to-energy facility in the harbour, which will provide electricity to the national grid.
The Cork Harbour Alliance for Safe Environment (CHASE) has objected to the use of the Ringaskiddy site for incineration for the past 14 years.
Chairperson of CHASE, Mary O'Leary, says the local community is unanimously opposed to the plans.
She said: "Cork has had dirty industry for 40 years, we have had Irish Steel and we had IFI, they are all gone now.
"We are spending €63m on Haulbowline Island setting up a park for the people of Cork, because Cork doesn't actually have a big park.
"Dublin has Phoenix Park, we have Cork Harbour and we are now reclaimning it to do with it what we want.
"There is a huge groundswell this time, because people are so angry and people are seeing the potential of Cork Harbour now and they potentially have to develop it."
