Bottom ash is waste, it can't be recycled
AS A Buckfastleigh resident I would like to request that in any further articles you print on our fight against the use of Whitecleave Quarry for the disposal of incinerator bottom ash (IBA) , you make sure of your facts. Both the EU and the UK Government have stated quite positively that disposal of incinerator bottom ash is not recycling, it is waste disposal and should be referred to as such.
The people of Buckfastleigh welcome recycling and we campaigned to keep our recycling centre, which unfortunately was shut down two years ago.
Perhaps, therefore, you would print an article reflecting the fact that IBA is waste disposal, not recycling and ask Paul Carey to explain how he can describe the process as recycling when all competent authorities that license this process quite categorically state that it is not recycling. I believe that your newspaper has shown a bias towards MVV Gilpin and therefore a lack of journalistic integrity on this whole issue for two years – more than enough time to get a grip on the facts.
On a personal note, I live a couple of hundred yards along the road from the quarry and at the risk of sounding like a NIMBY, having chosen to live in a rural area I do not relish the thought of lorries laden with potentially toxic substances thundering past my home at all hours of the night and day.
