So Scully, do you believe that all the fires in so-called recycling centres are definitive evidence of alien involvement? Or perhaps the farce of so-called re-cycling where rubbish is simply stored expensively because there is no longer any market for recyclables means that companies are torching their premises because they cannot afford to meet their financial obligations they undertook in order to win waste contracts? Or perhaps recycled rubbish is just more prone to the phenomenon of spontaneously convenient combustion?

Does any other type of industrial facility burn-down with such amazing regularity?

If we had an incinerator, at least we could get some benefit from all this heat.

Such sites tend to attract certain types of people who wouldn't think twice about throwing the odd match!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Failing that, burn the bloody stuff to generate electricity and reduce use of something more expensive. :roll:

A serious financial penalty for accidental fires would prevent most accidental fires.

AN ESTIMATED 50,000 tonnes of domestic waste look set to be exported from Cork city and county this year for disposal abroad due to a lack of local facilities to cater for the waste.

Some 28,000 tonnes of domestic black bag waste which cannot be recycled has been exported through Cork port since the beginning of the year and the figure is expected to reach 50,000 tonnes by the end of the year.

The export of the waste is organised by Indaver. Details of the Cork shipments emerged last month at an oral hearing held by An Bord Pleanála into a planning application by Indaver for an expansion of its €140 million incinerator at Carranstown near Duleek, Co Meath.

Indaver confirmed this is the first year it has exported domestic waste through Cork but said it expects the business to grow in the coming years as landfills are being phased out throughout Munster.

A spokesman for the company said there were currently shipments from Cork every three weeks to either the Netherlands or Sweden, where the waste was disposed of in incinerators and used to generate electricity.

Came across that incinerator in Duleek in the line of work and it seems that waste is now actually a commodity and that the price varies from week to week due to fluctuations in demand.

I'm not trying to be smart, but don't you mean that it's a liability and not a commodity? Surely there's nobody paying for waste?

If it's viable fuel for electricity generation, why not?

Oh yes, they actually buy in waste from other European countries. Waste is actually worth money now.
Couldn't believe it until they showed us the setup.

Several units of the fire service are still at the scene of a extensive fire at a waste recycling plant on the outskirts of Cork City. The blaze broke out at around 7.30pm last night at the Greenstar Waste Recycling Plant at Sarsfield Court in Glanmire. Once the fire is brought under control, the scene will be preserved for a technical examination to establish the cause of the blaze.

Nine trucks are believed to be on fire however the extent of the damage is unclear at this stage.

I'm going to guess they are rubbish collection trucks.

I'm on my fifth green recycle bin this month. You only have to look at it and it starts sparking.
