Video: Residents united in opposition to incinerator plan

Around 150 people packed in to the Academy Sports Club in Mallusk on Wednesday evening (April 16) to voice their opposition to the plan to build a massive waste incinerator at Hightown Quarry.

The proposal from arc21 - the waste management group for Newtownabbey and 10 other local councils - and the Becon Consortium to construct a £240m Energy from Waste plant at the Boghill Road site has met with widespread opposition. And those in attendance at Wednesday’s meeting expressed their determination to fight the controversial plan and ensure that it doesn’t get the go-ahead.

No-Arc21 representatives and local politicians show a united front in their opposition to the Hightown incinerator plan.
