Microwave hospital waste disposal

Clydebelt helped the Dalmuir Community Council to defeat planning application 95/139 for a microwave hospital waste disposal development, particularly at a public meeting with the developers AAH on 11th October 1995. We said we would withdraw our objections if the comments and questions below were answered to our satisfaction.

There were detailed questions in four main categories:

  1. Does the AAH microwave equipment safely convert hospital waste into harmless material that can be land filled?
  2. Can the process be monitored and controlled safely?
  3. Will the process be operated properly?
  4. Can local people and District Council make a safe decision now?

The full set of questions is available as a PDF file at

The questions were never answered, and the application was withdrawn.
