Project Fear The Waste

Recommended Posts

Turns out we currently ship all our black bin waste out to waste to energy plants in Europe because we have never bothered to invest in our own.  Subsequently Southerners are now going to have to dump their waste in the North after Brexit because their population density is too high to bury it there.  

 Meanwhile, the UK waste industry's trade body has warned a disruptive no-deal Brexit could mean rubbish from the more densely-populated South East being sent to landfill in northern England.

No-deal Brexit 'will see more waste going to landfill' https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-49440290

Frankly Brexit can’t come soon enough,  investing in our own infrastructure is well overdue.

They are still building more as we speak  

Every sub contractor i know of that`s involved in the construction of them and this includes bio mass work on a labour only basis ,the quality of the manufacturing/materials is notoriously bad to do it on price would be financial suicide

And one in Cornwall in clay country.

Obviously it's not actually generating anything at the moment because the turbine is broken.

But at least we tried.

I don’t doubt it,  but if we have such abundant capacity of our own,  why are we currently exporting loads to Europe for exactly this purpose?
