The Incinerator is the basic Garbage disposal facility in SimCity 3000. It is also a module for the garbage plant in Simcity 2013.
Incinerators are the first disposal facility unlocked. They dispose of up to 6,000 tons per month but at a price. They cause hazardously large amounts of pollution and will quickly send Residential and Comercial and zones into abandonment and the land value will plummet drastically. These are recommended to be quickly replaced with Recycling Centers and/or Waste to Energy Incinerators.
In Simcity 2013, incinerators are a module to the garbage plant. A total of four of them can be built at each garbage plant. Unlike the Simcity 3000 incinerator, these are not as effective. Additonally, it does not produce any electricity, unlike the Waste to Energy Incinerators.
