To the Editor:

I am paying taxes under protest this year. I don't want Bristol to become a magnet for medical waste. Our air is bad enough- we don't need to become another New Jersey. Increased truck traffic would impact our air and roads. Increased burning would pollute our air and water.

I watched some of Covanta's virtual meeting and I believe that their incinerator plant should burn itself out.

I don't trust some corporations and I trust some garbage truckers even less.

Our city voted once not to expand burning. We should reduce, reuse, or recycle. More exhaust causes climate change. Cut down on the burning and change for the better. 

Tom Doyle Sr.
