Unions back recycling not landfill

At a recent meeting of Wrexham County Trades Union Council it was agreed to support a resolution on refuse disposal moved by the Union AMICUS. It read:

There are 38 landfill sites in Wales, one at Hafod near Wrexham is importing 300,000 tonnes of refuse per annum from Merseyside and other authorities.

There is at present no consistent policy operated by local authorities for dealing with refuse, a common policy is required in order to comply with EU directives thereby avoiding landfill and carbon emissions.

Wrexham County Trades Union Council calls on the Wales TUC to conduct an investigation into this issue and urge the National Assembly to introduce a waste strategy for Wales which recycles refuse at source in localised custom-built plants that do not involve Incineration or Pyrolysis / Gasification but recycles refuse into a product that can be used in industry.

This has to be yet another thorn in the side of MWH and its associates and welcome support for the members of the Hafod Environmental Group.

The Wales TUC, which represents half the workers in Wales (including some T&GWU truck drivers no doubt), will debate this motion at their annual conference in May. If passed, it will add half a million voices to our call for a proper waste policy rather than the current free-for-all that puts profit before people and communities.

Will the enemy within lean on the Executive to remit the Resolution to them to prevent a debate ?

Has the conference been held and if so does anyone know whether the resolution received support?

You don't need to sign your posts hafodblogger. We know your nick name is idiot. We also know you drink too much and can type 'names of posh wine' on google.
Like I said before, I save my posts ready for when you delete.
It has gone very political on here with the moniority being very disrespectful of elected representatives who were voted in by the majority after Hafod was opened. Why is that then?
