John Young from the Dovesdale Action Campaign states that some councillors are misleading constituents stating that South Lanarkshire Council will not be burning waste at the Dovesdale incinerator they approved February 2011. They have also stated the waste will be burned at Runcorn and that they will not be sending their waste to Dovesdale. The truth is in what they don’t say.
Just read the No two Dovesdale Incinerator update. You can read it at www.dovesdaleincinerator.info - they have been busy on a range of fronts including developing an alternative, positive use for the site. South Lanarkshire Council are spending £469million of your cash (decided at a closed meeting by the way) sending our waste down to Runcorn near Manchester until 2014. The campaigners need and deserve your help - contact them through their website.
Many of you objected to the Dovesdale incinerator near Stonehouse. South Lanarkshire Council passed it but they now need a licence to operate from SEPA and the consultation period for this is open. Details and how to object below:
