Jersey gets licence to ship waste ash to UK

Toxic ash created by burning rubbish in Jersey's energy from waste plant can now be shipped to the UK for treatment or disposal. The UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has issued the States with a licence to transport the waste material, according to an article from BBC News.

The States has gone out to tender for a company to carry out the work. Other non-toxic ash is being tested to see if it can be recycled and used as a building material. The ash is created by burning rubbish at La Collette and the toxic or fly ash is separated and is currently being stored in sealed pits.
