DCC urges ‘incinerator’ session attendance despite boycott call

Have your say

DERRY City Council is encouraging people from the Strathfoyle and Maydown area to attend an information session on Wednesday (February 27) to find out about a proposed new incinerator in the area despite a local youth group’s call for a boycott.

Some local residents have expressed opposition to the proposed new waste facility - considered a type of incinerator by the EU - that will dispose of at least 120k tonnes of household rubbish generated by households from Moyle to Strabane every year.

But a spokesperson for Derry City Council stated that a planned Public Information Session provides an opportunity for the community to receive information on the treatment technologies under consideration by the North Waste Region Waste Management Group (NWRWMG) with regard to the Waste Management Plan and the Residual Waste Infrastructure Project.
