Incinerator Out Of Action For Two Weeks

The incinerator is broken and it won’t be fixed for another two weeks.

But Council staff say it won’t affect the work to reduce the height of the waste mountain at the dump.

A large fan housed in the room at the base of the chimney stopped working at 9pm on Monday evening. The parts have been ordered and will cost £5,000.

The waste fragmenter is faulty too but that’s under warranty. An engineer has fitted new parts but couldn’t come over again this week because fog cancelled flights.

The Town Hall say that much of the stockpiled waste has already been shredded and burned by the incinerator and the shredding work will go on while the incinerator is out of action.
