Viridor have admitted that in order to fill their 350,000 tonnes per year incinerator with rubbish will require an extra 256 waste lorries every day.

This is a 3 per cent increase in traffic congestion and pollution for Cardiff residents as the lorries bring in rubbish from all over south Wales to the site on Ocean Way.
