Only Welsh waste incinerator shut down

The only currently-operating waste incinerator in Wales, the Crymlyn Burrows incinerator near Swansea, has been shut down after failing 5 out of its past 10 dioxin limits. We understand, unfortunately, that this shutdown is only temporary. It also comes after seven years of complaints by residents about pollution and smell at the site, as well as a long history of operational problems. This is, it seems, the level of policing we can expect from Environment Agency Wales.
It's now six months since this year's campaign against the Cardiff incinerator was launched. I hope the turning of the new year finds everyone well and I know that our best fights lie ahead of us in 2011.
