THE CONTROVERSIAL Newhaven incinerator was officially opened on Wednesday July 4.
Protesters gathered outside to speak out against Veolia’s plans to increase lorry deliveries of waste on public and bank holidays.
And Veolia Environmental Services, which built the incinerator, was keen to point out the benefits of the facility, which included job creation, recycling metal and producing bottom ash for use in road building and creating enough energy to power 25,000 homes.
The Sussex Express was invited to the official opening.
