Waste plant protest

Issue No. 1812

ABOUT 60 campaigners lobbied councillors in Caerphilly in Wales last week against a proposed waste recycling plant being built on their doorstep. Over 2,500 local residents have signed a petition against the plant planned for the Risca quarry.

The giant conglomerate Hanson, which made a fortune from electricity privatisation, is behind the scheme. The plans are next due to be discussed at a council planning meeting on 15 August.
