My understanding, based on a different spectator article on the issue, was that Liberty Energy already has all the necessary permissions to build their own incinerator facility (presumably the one which would handle waste from other municipalities) and that signing up Hamilton would only increase the size of their incinerator. Failing to sign up Hamilton will not stop the incinerator altogether.

Also worth noting, the options council is considering include: Partner with Liberty, contract with Liberty to handle our waste, or build our own incinerator. "No incinerators in Hamilton" does not appear to be an option that's open to the city.

It would appear that all of the above options require Hamilton "invest dollars" in the plan, although whether it is in capital, or in annual fees, and what Hamilton will have to show for it seem to be the main differences.
