NO NUKE WASTE IN LANDFILL – Join us on Saturday in Kendal from 11.30 to 1.30 – meet at the Bird Cage, Finkle St.
PLease join us – bring banners, music etc
We will be asking people to write to Cumbria County Council in opposition to radioactive waste being dumped into Lillyhall landfill.
To Cumbria County Council Development Control Committee,
Cumbrians have been reducing, reusing and recycling their domestic waste. Now the nuclear industry wants to fill the “spare capacity” of 1.4 million cubic metres at Lillyhall landfill with radioactive waste.
This landfill is less than half a mile from the Energus centre and Nuclear Academy for children of secondary school age. The Environment Agency has said that exposure from waste 200 bequerels a gram “would be expected to have an adverse effect on human health…” The waste proposed for Lillyhall is twice as dangerous up to 400 bequerels a gram!
• There will be a “controlled release of radioactivity to groundwaters”
• Radioactive waste would arrive at the site in unmarked plastic bags.
• Radioactive waste would come from, for example, Scotland
Please refuse permission for operators to dump ANY more radioactive waste in Lillyhall landfill,
If you cannot join us on Saturday there is more info here on how to get involved in the fight to LOCK THE GATE on nuclear waste
