Your chance to question boss of Plymouth incinerator scheme
THE man in charge of one of Plymouth's most controversial projects, the Devonport incinerator, is to take questions live online next week.
Managing Director of MVV Environment Devonport Ltd Paul Carey will be in The Herald office on February 28 taking your questions live on thisisplymouth.
For two hours you will be able to submit written questions and get answers straight from the man in charge of the plan – which will see waste being burnt in a purpose built incinerator at Devonport Dockyard's North Yard.
The plant will generate heat and energy for the community, as well as disposing of our rubbish.

The session will run over two hours on Thursday, February 28.
To follow it, submit questions and take part simply click on the 'Live online questions and answers with MVV' story on thisisplymouth.co.uk at the top of the website.
During the Q&A, you can ask questions and comment on Paul Carey's answers between 12pm and 2pm.
Permission for the £140million incinerator was granted in February 2012 after a lengthy planning process.
It will handle up to 245,000 tonnes of rubbish a year from Plymouth, Torbay and South Devon, and will start working in 2014.
Residents have campaigned against the incinerator fearing noise, pollution, extra lorries carrying waste to and from the plant and chemicals from the waste process.
Plymouth City Council and other authorities have had to come up with a solution to the growing waste problem.
If you want to submit your questions before the day, MVV will look at them ahead of the event and publish answers on the day, as well as after the event through The Herald and thisisplymouth.
You can email your questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org with MVV in the subject line before February 26 and we will try to include as many of them as possible in the online Q&A session with Paul Carey.
You can also send your questions to Neil Shaw, thisisplymouth, 17 Brest Road, Plymouth, Pl6 5AA.
