What are you thinking of this?
Clinical waste from Scottish health boards burned by council
District heating costs an arm and a leg, so it's good to see old arms and legs being used to keep the cost of heating down ;-)

Its fine, as long as the Council is making sure whoever is sending it is paying the full cost of delivery to the furnace door, it'll help offset the fuel deficit created by them kowtowing to Holyrood's pointless box ticking exercise of sending the plastic and paper sooth in the lip-service name of 'recycling'.


That said, its costing us all un-necessarily in tax dollars to store/handle/transport, and is highly 'un-green' to do, which seems to just about sum up the majority of bureaucracy's cack handed attempts at pretty much all recycling/environmental friendly issues.


However such waste is disposed of, common sense dictates that it should be done in quantities and at locations that minimise both the financial and carbon footprint costs of doing so, storing it up until there's a sufficient quantity worth sending, then hauling it from all points around Scotland to Aberdeen and sending it on one of the most diesel greedy boats afloat to here is about as far from that as you can get.
