Waste Disposal Disrupted in Westman Islands

Waste disposal in the Westman Islands has been disrupted since December while the Heimaey town council awaits an environmental assessment report on the environmental impact of waste incineration, Vísir reports.

Council members expressed frustration with the delay with the environmental impact report, which they say will also delay the town’s plans for the construction of a new waste-to-energy plant.

The Heimaey town council is expected to announce updated rules on waste disposal on the island next week.
