Activists slam plan for waste in Mass.

They call new incineration methods harmful

State officials on Tuesday ­issued a solid waste reduction plan that includes a provision to loosen a nearly quarter-­century moratorium on new ­incinerators in Massachusetts, a move that activists decried as harmful to the environment.

The Patrick administration unveiled the Massachusetts 2010-2020 Solid Waste Master Plan, which will allow solid waste companies to seek ­approval to adopt new incineration technologies on a limited scale.
