Incinerator - update needed

In January of last year, BBC-Wales was reporting that: "One of the main issues in Neath Port Talbot is the future of the controversial incinerator and recycling centre at Crymlyn Burrows. The council is hoping to settle a legal dispute to pave the way for a new private investor to run the site." Residents will remember the fire of 2004 and the £40 million bankruptcy of the PFI company in 2005.

In March 2007, Peter Black AM called for continuous monitoring of the air near the incinerator, with particular reference to dioxins. To date, there have been two spot-checks, using the Environment Agency's mobile laboratory, in 2002 and 2003 - that is, before the fire and reconstruction.

We await news on both fronts.
