Andrew Murrison has welcomed the Environment Agency’s announcement that Hills Waste - having breached its permit conditions at its smelly rubbish site in Westbury adjacent to its proposed waste burner - has been served a legal enforcement notice. He said;
“If Hills can’t operate its existing waste site properly what hope is there that toxins from its proposed incinerator won’t also leak just like its stink that’s been afflicting my Westbury constituents for weeks on end?
“I’m truly appalled at the laid back attitude the company has to adopted and fully support the Environment Agency in its enforcement action. I have written to the Agency to express my hope that, if the incinerator ends up being foisted on Westbury, it will use Hills’ poor record as justification for applying the most stringent controls on its operations.
