More councils may dump in Johnstown

Liverpool councils aren't content with dumping their own waste in the Hafod - we can reveal that Mersey Waste is now asking Flintshire and Halton councils (amongst others) to send their rubbish to Johnstown.

Wrexham councillors were warned that allowing Liverpool to dump in Johnstown would open the floodgates - it didn't take long for that to happen.

Protest against the dumping - we are protesting at any time between 7am-6pm Monday to Friday and 7am-1pm on Saturdays.

and to make matters worse, Wrexham council officers think it's a good idea to have even more lorries trundling up to the quarry! Apparently they think it'll mean the site gets full more quickly.

Interesting thatthey want to include Flintshire waste as they hope that will get rid of the Wales/england dimension

Flintshire is as good as england anyway and always has been, Waste from flintshire is still waste from liverpool. If you drive very slowly and keep your eyes wide open you might meet a welsh person in flintshire the next time haleys comet is due..

Flintshire... home of Daniel Owen (the Welsh Charles Dickens), dramatist Emlyn Williams and - er- Gary Speed. And next year's National Eisteddfod.

Counvils, private, commercial. All types of waste is going in. Tough!
You cannot recycle everything. If you pic and seperate waste you still need customers to buy what is there to cover the recycling cost. Nobody wants our crap. The incinerator on Wrexham Industrial Estate was blocked so what do you suggest?
It is just a case of house prices and "not on my doorstep." There have not been many protests at Pen-Y-Bont.

The only thing worse than landfill for Wxm would be the incinerator (unless you like your cornflakes to have black bits with them)
There is an option that doesn't involve sweeping our rubbish under the carpet (landfill) or burning it (incineration) - it's called zero waste. Cities around the world are well on the way to achieving 75-80% recycling - from Galway to Canberra. It involves separating our rubbish properly. But it also involves reducing the packaging and other rubbish we get in supermarkets, etc.
A lot of people may be NIMBYs but many others see that Hafod is a symptom of a much wider problem. Would you want Hafod on your doorstep? If not, why not join the campaign rather than sniping from the sidelines?
