The petitioner wants to see energy and environmental policy on waste treatment and waste management changed to stop the harmful effects caused by waste incineration, as has happened, he believes, in La Sagra (Toledo). He says La Sagra suffers from extremely heavy pollution emanating from two big cement works located in the area. The petitioner also reports that plants manufacturing the liquor orujo in the olive-growing region of Toledo produce emissions and send out a greasy smoke into the air which permeates local homes and causes local residents breathing problems. The petitioner considers there is considerable discrepancy between what the EU stipulates in its environmental legislation and what actually happens on the ground, as can be seen in the circular economy in the Autonomous Community of Castile La Mancha.
