Lincolnshire burns half of the rubbish collected
Half of Lincolnshire's rubbish is burned, one of the highest rates of incineration in England.
Campaigners have called for a tax on incineration due to the amount of pollution it causes.
Between April 2017 and March 2018, 181,263 tonnes of rubbish was burned in Lincolnshire, according to the latest Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs figures.
