Nuclear mud isn’t the only waste. The industry is getting rid of waste by sending it to landfill, ‘recycling’ – new routes are being found to dump as much waste as possible. The planned incinerator at Carlisle does not give any indication where the waste would be coming from. Radiation Free Lakeland have written a letter of objection. The door is wide open to a tsunami of radioactive waste being incinerated. The private operators and even the regulators can get away with saying ‘ what dont be ridiculous there is NO RADIOACTIVE WASTE planned for the new incinerator’. They said this to us about radioactive wastes being dumped at Lillyhall. This is because the waste that used to be classified as radioactive is now classified as “exempt” for “free release” so by the magic touch of a magic pen it is no longer radioactive.
