Information for Loganswell Farm (near Newton Mearns, Barrhead and Glasgow)

Status: Prevented
Planning Region: Scotland
Planning Sub-Region: East Renfrewshire
Operator: Lifetime Recycling
Capacity: ~900,000
Campaign Group(s): East Renfrewshire Against the Incinerator, Jackson Carlaw MSP and Green Alternatives to Incineration in Scotland (GAINS)
Notes: Lifetime Recycling Village closed in May 2015, and locals believe this has stopped the proposal [Source]. Up to 1.5 million tonnes of primarily commercial and industrial waste were intended to be processed at the facility, with an unknown fraction of this going to the gasification-type incinerator [Source, Source]. If the 40% recycling rate stated by the applicant was correct [Source] and does not include ’recycling’ of gasification residue then the incinerator capacity would be around 900,000 tonnes (Entry updated 2015-07-07)
