EAST SUSSEX EXPLAINS BATTLE OVER WASTE

Bob Wilkin, director of environment, East Sussex CC, wrote to The Sunday Telegraph (p40) to explain the problems facing the council in disposing of its waste.

He said: 'There is a wider waste issue affecting all of East Sussex than your report 'Battle struggles to save its 1066 site' suggests. We do not want to see mountains of rubbish anywhere but we want to follow the principles of reducing, re-using and recycling. What can't be recycled will need to be burned to release energy, and the residue will have to go to landfill.

'Two-thirds of East Sussex is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty and this makes our site selection difficult. The site near Battle is not the site of the Battle of Hastings as you imply and I need to stress we are aware of the sensitivity of the location.'
