This would largely depend on what chemical it is. I found a paper discussing some of the metals found in incinerator residue from a study in Japan. They found that lead, iron, copper, zinc, cadmium, aluminum and chromium were found in incinerator residue. Metals such as lead can pass through breast milk and it is suggested that if a woman tests for high levels of lead in her blood she should not breast feed. As far as chemicals go, the types of chemicals found would vary with what is being incinerated, if the trash contains hazardous chemicals, they may not all be destroyed through the burning process and could pose some risk.
