There was much criticism in the summer of 2013 when the Region of Durham held a celebration over the opening of its energy-from-waste facility.

If it had been a landfill solution vs. an incinerator, a party would have also been deserved. The fact of the matter is that getting government approval for a waste management facility is a long, byzantine process.
Anyone entering the process does not come out without any scars. Perhaps medals were in order at the celebration.
