Incinerator bosses get their hands burnt
News that the management of the controversial incinerator in Crymlyn Burrows is to be changed on the orders of Neath Port Talbot Council. This follows a fire at the plant that revealed a number of health and safety concerns as well as causing some significant pollution to the surrounding environment. Nothing like closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. Although the recycling part of this plant is welcome the incinerator is not. It is old technology and should be closed down forthwith. There are many alternative ways to dispose of waste apart from landfill and incineration.
