VALENCIA Waste Management is set to host its first community liaison meeting regarding operations at its Dunbar landfill site.

A liaison committee was formed following a fire at the site last August which burned for four days, causing much of Dunbar and surrounding villages to be affected by smoke.

The Valencia site is allowed to take waste from across the UK and also takes waste from commercial businesses in East Lothian.

The public meeting will close investigations into the fire and provide an update on site operations.

It takes place on Wednesday, January 31, at Dunbar Town House from 7pm to 8.30pm.

A meeting at the end of September last year served as the launch of the group, with details of an internal investigation, supported by SEPA, revealing that a lithium battery explosion was the likely cause of the fire.

It is expected that community liaison meetings will now be held regularly.
