North Yorkshire County Council will consider the plans
A plan to build a waste incinerator in North Yorkshire, which has sparked concern from residents, has now been opposed by district councillors.
Villagers said they were worried about the health implications of the scheme on Marston Business Park in Tockwith.
The company behind the project said it had no major environmental impact.
Harrogate councillors objected at a earlier meeting but the final decision on the proposal will be made by county councillors.
One resident, Helen Algar, who lives near the site, said she felt the community was being used as a "guinea pig".
The facility would be designed to process 60,000 tonnes of waste per year.
The planning application states this would be broken down to 30,000 tonnes of non-hazardous solid waste from homes and businesses and 30,000 tonnes of waste from an adjacent waste transfer station.
In a statement, BCB Environmental Management, the company behind the scheme, said: "This project has been designed to have no significant environmental impact."
