Waste and Recycling Topic Group
The Waste & Recycling Group held its first meeting on Friday 6th November, and were pleased to welcome Thomas Minter, CEO of Malaby Biogas Ltd, who operate the biogas plant in Warminster. Thomas agreed to make a presentation about the plant and its work at the next WCA Members' Meeting on 2nd December, which we are all looking forward to.
The main discussion concerned the proposed waste incinerator in Westbury, which is scheduled for decision by Wiltshire Council at their January meeting. Full minutes of the meeting will be posted here shortly. We need to oppose this development, as the incinerator will add to climate change emissions and other air pollution. This is not just an issue for Westbury residents, but for the whole of Wiltshire.
